I am a health systems epidemiologist in the Department of Global Health and Development, with an interest in statistical, mathematical and econometric methods. My first degree was in Mathematics from the University of Oxford, with a focus on applications for modelling fluids and biological systems. I have an MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and an MRes from Imperial College, London.

Teaching

I am a seminar leader on the Economic Analysis for Health Policy and Basic Statistics for Public Health & Policy modules, and a tutor on MSc Public Health & MSc Control of Infectious Diseases.

Research

I combine epidemiological and economic approaches to study access to and quality of care in low- and middle-income countries.

I work on the RECAP project on preparedness and response to humanitarian crises and epidemics. My focus is on access to routine maternal, reproductive and child health services for refugees and after epidemics.

I have previously worked on the evaluation of an intervention to improve quality of care in private health facilities in sub-Saharan Africa, which included an RCT in Tanzania and analysis of programmatic data.

I have a particular interest in the harms overprovision of healthcare, and am completing a PhD on this topic, supervised by Tim Powell-Jackson and James Hargreaves.
