Research

 My broad area of expertise is child health in low income settings, with an initial focus on case management of children with uncomplicated malaria in health facilities in South West Senegal. Since then, I have developed a strong interest in evaluating behaviour change interventions, in particular targeting family behaviours related to child survival or health care workers’ adherence to guidelines. Since 2002, I have spent extensive periods in Senegal and Burkina Faso where I have gained experience in designing, implementing and analysing population-based household surveys.
