Asher Zafar

Policy, Strategy + Analytics Fellow

Asher’s passion for civic innovation led him to a career spanning technology, strategy consulting, government, and now, BII+E. Most recently, he built a quantitative policy analysis team at the Ontario Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Development that brings data science and a digital-first approach to public policy.

Asher combines data-driven approaches with ambitious ideas to deliver tangible change and an innovative, open culture. His public sector experience spans economic development, regulatory modernization, digital transformation, healthcare, and education.

Asher holds degrees in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin (B.A.,) and York University (M.A.), and spends entirely too much time on MOOCs.
