I joined the department of Global Health and Development in 2012 and I am currently affiliated to the Health Economics & Systems Analysis (HESA) group. I have a Master degree in Development Economics from the Centre for Studies and Research in Development Economics (CERDI, France). Then, I have spent two years working on the extension of health insurance to vulnerable population in Senegal in collaboration with the International Labour Organization. Between 2009 and 2012, I was a research student at the department of economics of the University of Otago (New Zealand). Since 2014, I am a Medical Research Council fellow.

Teaching

I am a seminar leader for the modules "Introduction to Health Economics" and "Economic analysis for health policy" and a lecturer on quasi-experimental methods for impact evaluation for the module "Evaluation of public health interventions".  

Research

My main research area is currently on the economics of prostitution and uses a behavioural economics approach to analyse behaviours of Senegalese sex workers.  

Another main research interest is on the evaluation of national health policies using quasi-experimental econometric techniques. 

Previously, I have been working on women's empowerment, access to care and health financing, economic and technical efficiency of the Avahan initiative and on the economic evaluation of new HIV prevention technologies (PrEP and TasP).
