I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social Psychology from the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, CA) and a Master of Science degree in Global Public Health from Harvard University (Cambridge, US). My PhD at LSHTM focused on community-level determinants of health behaviour, particularly alcohol consumption in the former Soviet Union.

I am currently a Wellcome Trust Research Fellow in Society and Ethics. My research focuses on the impact of health care costs for cardiovascular disease on healthcare- seeking behaviour and risk of impoverishment among households in middle- and low-income countries. My research interests also include health systems and health care delivery in fragile or developing country settings. 

Prior to joining LSHTM, I worked at St. Michael's Hospital (University of Toronto) and at the Public Health Foundation of India (Delhi).

Research

My research has predominantly focused on socio-economic causes and consequences of cardiovascular disease (and its risk factors) and mental illness. My particular interest is in access to healthcare for these diseases in low-income and post-conflict settings. I am associate editor of the journal Conflict & Health.
