I joined the Department of Global Health and Development as a Research Fellow in Health Economics in January 2015, after completing an MSc in Public Health at LSHTM. I also have a Masters in Applied Finance from Macquarie University and a BA in Political Science from The University of Western Australia.

Prior to LSHTM, I worked for 13 years in corporate advisory and health finance in Australia, including as commercial/financial advisor for some of Australia's largest public and private sector health and hospital infrastructure projects.

Teaching

I teach on the School's Economic Evaluation distance learning course and also on the face-to-face module of the same name. I am a seminar leader on the Introduction to Health Economics module and supervise MSc Public Health students. I also give a lecture on malaria economics as part of the Epidemiology and Control of Malaria module.

Research

Recent projects include cost-effectiveness modelling of the introduction of malaria rapid diagnostic tests in different epidemiological settings, and economic evaluations alongside: a cluster-randomised trial of reactive malaria case detection in Cambodia and a cluster-randomised non-inferiority trial of targeted malaria vector control in South Africa. Other research interests include mechanisms for funding and financing of health systems and health infrastructure.
