I am Research Fellow in the Child Protection Research Group within the Gender Violence and Health Centre (GVHC). I have a BA and MSc in Economics and Social Sciences from Bocconi University in Italy. Prior to LSHTM I worked for several international organisations including BRAC, Innovations for Poverty Action, and the Children's Investment Fund Foundation on issues such as women's financial inclusion, girls'education and empowerment, maternal and child health, and child protection in Bangladesh, Tanzania, Ethopia and India. 

I am also a member of the Centre for Health Economics In London (CHIL) and I am currently pursuing a part-time PhD in Global Health and Development.

Teaching

I am a seminar leader on the Introduction to Health Economics and on the Economic Analysis for Health Policy modules.

Research

My research interests lie at the intersection of development, behavioural and health economics. Most of my work focuses on the evaluation of interventions aimed at improving health and economic outcomes for women and children in low and middle income countries. 

I currently co-lead the impact evaluation of a school-based intervention to prevent violence against children in schools in Nyarugusu refugee camp in Kigoma, Tanzania (PVAC). In this context my research focuses on exploring the relationship between the school enviornment, school violence and children’s socio-emotional skills and social behaviours. I am also involved in a mixed-methods study to develop and evaluate a violence prevention intervention in Catholic schools in Zimbabwe (CCSS-Z).

Previous work at LSHTM included two field experiments assessing the impact of information and social accountability interventions on the demand for maternal and child health care in rural India and a study aimed at measuring and understanding context effects in relation to self-reported measures of subjective wellbeing among women in rural villages of Uttar Pradesh. These studies were part of the Maternal healthcare markets Evaluation Team.

More recently I have also been involved in a study exploring the global patterns, determinants, and regional drivers of human trafficking and exploitation using IOM’s Trafficked Migrants’ Assistance Database (TMAD).
