Teaching

I am a tutor on the Economic Evaluation distance learning module and a final project supervisor for the MSc Public Health (Distance Learning). I also assisted with the development of the online Health Economics and Financing in Low and Middle Income Countries open access course.

Research

My work is mainly in the area of economic evaluation, with a practical focus on model-based analyses for supporting decision-making and 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 preventative regimens in selected high-burden countries; a model-based analysis of the economic impact of Covid-19 in low- and middle-income settings; and an analysis of the sustainability of immunisation financing in Zambia, where I am based.
