Teaching

I am a tutor on the Health Economics and Financing in Low and Middle Income Countries short course and on the Introduction to Health Economics distance learning module. I am also a final project supervisor for the MSc Public Health (Distance Learning).

Research

My work is mainly in the area of economic evaluation, with a practical focus on supporting decision-making on resource allocation in low- and middle-income countries. I am currently a part-time PhD candidate, developing a priority-setting model for tuberculosis control in South Africa that takes into account health system constraints. Other projects include cost-effectiveness analyses of new TB vaccine candidates in selected high-burden countries; and of an education and health programme for vulnerable adolescent girls in Zambia, where I am based.
