I am an expert macroeconomic simulation modeller, and have 20 years of experience in development and health economics research. I hold degrees in Mathematics and Economics (MSc) and Development Economics (PhD) from University of Copenhagen. Before joining LSHTM in September 2016, I worked at University of Copenhagen for more than 20 years.

Teaching

My teaching roles include Deputy Module Organiser for the school's distance learning module in Economic Analysis for Health Policy, and MSc Project tutor for the school's Public Health distance learning stream.

Research

I have authored a number of academic journal articles with a focus on macroeconomic simulation modelling, and has been lead modeller on a range of projects covering economic development and poverty alleviation strategies, middle-income country financial sector development strategies, labour market adjustment strategies, agricultural trade policies, road infrastructure policies, and national accounts construction.

Over the past seven years, my research has focussed on health and the measurement of disease burdens and policy impacts on infectious and non-communicable diseases including malaria and HIV/AIDS in Sub-Saharan Africa, Alzheimer’s Disease in China, and dietary-related illnesses in South, South East, and East Asia.

My methodological focus is the application of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) models, and the construction of fully integrated macroeconomic and epidemiological-demographic simulation models.
