My academic background is in development economics, which I studied first at SOAS and then at Oxford. I have since worked as a researcher, authoring papers on topics in epidemiology, global health, development, and economics. I worked most recently as a health economist for the local government of Freetown in Sierra Leone, before coming to the LSHTM.
