I currently hold a joint appointment between the LSHTM and the School of Public Health and Family Medicine at the University of Cape Town. My background is in development and health economics/policy.
My LSHTM teaching commitments focus on PhD supervision, support for distance learning courses and occasional on-site teaching.
My primary research interests include concerns for: equity in health and health care; governance in health systems; how health care is funded and organised; and how decisions about health and health care are made at policy, managerial and household levels.
