Dr Marco Liverani
in Health Policy
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a social scientist with postgraduate training in social anthropology (MSc, University College London) and a doctorate in sociology (University of Exeter). Since I joined the LSHTM in 2011, I have worked extensively in Southeast Asia, based at the LSHTM field offices in Bangkok, Thailand, and Phnom Penh, Cambodia. My research work in public health has mainly focused on different aspects of infectious disease prevention and control, including policy analysis and governance, risk assessment and management, and socio-economic aspects of disease emergence and transmission.
I am Deputy Module Organiser for the distance learning module ‘The Politics of Global Health Policy’ and tutor for the distance learning module ‘Globalisation and Health’. I offer supervision to doctoral and masters students with a background in the social sciences, especially those who are interested in health and development in East and Southeast Asia.
My current research interests include international health cooperation in Southeast Asia, the development of community-based health services in rural Cambodia, and the use of evidence to inform public health policy.
