in Health Economics
15-17 Tavistock Place
I joined LSHTM as a Research Assistant in 2010 after completing the MSc Epidemiology. My background includes a BSc in economics and a Master's degree in health, population and society from the London School of Economics.
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).
My work is mainly in the area of economic evaluation, ranging from the cost-utility analysis of eye care interventions to the cost-effectiveness of new vaccines introduction. I am currently a part-time PhD candidate, researching the evidence base on TB case finding strategies, diagnostics and treatment options to inform an investment model for the South African Department of Health. Other collaborations include work on the costing and cost-effectiveness of an education and health programme for vulnerable adolescent girls and of different models of HIV, SRH and family planning services integration in Zambia, where I am based.
