I am a PhD student at LSHTM, conducting research on health financing in low- and middle-income countries. I previously completed a Master of Public Health with a concentration in Health Systems and Policy at Johns Hopkins University in 2016-2017, and have conducted global health systems research at Harvard University.

I graduated as a medical doctor in 2015 from the University of Copenhagen. I currently work clinically in pediatrics in Denmark, have previously worked in infectious diseases, and have some experience working in Nepal, Uganda and Cameroon.

I manage a small international development NGO, The People's Fund for Global Health and Development, that gives community development grants to women's associations in Côte d'Ivoire.

Teaching

I have lectured and conducted seminars to BSc in Global Health students at Queen Mary University on communicable diseases, microbiology and immunology.

Research

My PhD project consists of two components:

- A multi-country econometric analysis of the dynamics between official development assistance, external debt and domestic health financing in low- and middle-income countries.

- A mixed-methods case study of the influence of international development partners on domestic health financing in Senegal.

I have also conducted research in communicable diseases, health systems and financing for women and children's health in low- and middle-income countries.
