Krystyna has a background in education and research and studied International Relations, Education for Primary Health Care and Epidemiology.
She has taught widely in Higher Education, managed qualitative research projects and collaborated on quantitative study design, data collection and analysis. Her principal area of academic and programmatic interest is maternal and neonatal health.
I am a Course Director for the MSc in Public Health in Developing Countries and teach on the following modules: Epidemiology in Practice (data management component); Current Issues In Safe Motherhood & Perinatal Health; Research Design and Analysis; Design and Analysis of Epidemiological Studies.
Currently I work on the IDEAS programme (http://ideas.lshtm.ac.uk), providing technical support to other Gates-funded projects working in Maternal and Newborn health at community level in Ethiopia, Uttar Pradesh and NE Nigeria.
Formerly, I was a training fellow with Ipact (University of Aberdeen) and ran international training courses in six countries in Africa and Asia in Monitoring and Evaluation of Maternal and Neonatal Health Programmes for programme managers in ministries of health at national level and in international NGOs.
Currently, my research interests focus on programmatic components of the provision of maternal and neonatal health services.
For five years I worked on IMMPACT, a research project that examines approaches to assessing the effectiveness and cost of maternal health programmes. The main focus of my work was the village-based midwife programme in Indonesia with a particular interest in the distribution of personnel and referral to hospital of women who suffer an obstetric emergency.
