After graduating in sociology at the University of Darmstadt (Germany), I completed an MA in Race and Ethnic Studies at Warwick University and a PhD in Russian and East European Studies at Birmingham University. I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and hold the LSHTM Postgraduate Certificate in Learning & Teaching. I have published 16 books, 40 book chapters and more than 70 articles in international peer-reviewed journals.

Teaching

I teach on health policy, health systems and public health and am a tutor/supervisor for MSc and PhD students.

Research

I work for the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies (http://www.euro.who.int/observatory) and am based in LSHTM at the Centre for Global Chronic Conditions. My work focusses on health, health systems and health policies in Europe. I am author and editor of Observatory studies, Health Systems in Transition (HiT) country profiles, and State of Health in the EU country health profiles.

Over the course of my career, I have undertaken work on a wide range of topics related to health systems and policies in Europe, including challenges to health and health policy in the countries of South Eastern Europe, a study on the appropriateness of the Millennium Development Goals to the countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, an evaluation of the Task Force on Communicable Disease Control in the Baltic Sea Region, research on health and human rights in Turkmenistan, a study on capital investment in Europe, a study on migration and health in the European Union, and a study on public health services in Europe.
