I am currently working on:

1) the IDEAS project in Ethiopia evaluating the impact of a maternal and child health quality improvement programme on health worker motivation;

2) TB modelling studies estimating the impact and cost-effectiveness of TB vaccines and digital adherence technologies;

3) a behavioural economic intervention in South Africa using SMS messaging to enourage linkage to care after a HIV self-test;

4) a project understanding determinants of risky sexual behaviour among bumsters in The Gambia

I use demand-side and behavioural economics to understand and solve public health problems. My current interests include the use of quasi-experimental methods, discrete choice experiments, and integrating economic and mathematical models.

I am involved in discrete choice experiment projects in South Africa, Uganda, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Sri Lanka, and the UK.

I previously held a joint appointment as a visiting researcher at Wits RHI, Johannesburg.

I presented at the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods Festival 2015 on "What are... discrete choice experiments?" - this 13min talk can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wm2wJflXG7E
