I am a distance learning tutor responsible for course design and delivery across modules in Introduction to Health Economics, Economic Evaluation and Impact Evaluation.  I have developed a number of short courses on the economics and financing of health care for different funding agencies including UNICEF, DfID, the British Council, UNAIDS and AusAID. I supervise PhD students in the area of economic evaluation of healthcare programmes in low and middle income countries with a specific interest in cost estimation.  I sit on the steering committee of the LSHTM Global Health Leadership course.
