I am a development economist specialising in the economics and financing of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services, and am a member of the Centre For Health Economics In London at LSHTM.

After studying at Oxford and LSE, I received an MSc Development Economics from SOAS. The topic of my PhD is the cost-effectiveness of an urban sanitation intervention in Maputo, Mozambique. I have a three-year doctoral studentship from the ESRC.

Before joining LSHTM, I established and grew a six-strong water team at Oxford Policy Management, leading WASH consulting projects for clients including the World Bank, DFID and UNICEF. Prior to that, I was in WaterAid’s policy team working on a variety of research and advocacy, including a secondment to Timor-Leste. 

I have full professional proficiency in French and am learning Portuguese. I have worked in Africa (Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Malawi, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Tunisia and Zambia) and South Asia (Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan), as well as in Haiti and Timor-Leste.

I run a blog at www.WASHeconomics.com
