Mazeda Hossain

  • Topics of interest: Humanitarian settings, violence, measurement, evaluation, conflict, refugees, stateless populations, methodological approaches, analysis of complex and/or large data sets.

Hannah Kuper

  • Topics of interest: There is a growing emphasis on the participation of people with disabilities during qualitative work on disability, particularly in low and middle income settings. One proposed method is through training people with disabilities as peer researchers. There is a lack of consideration, however, around the advantages and disadvantages of using this approach, as well as the practical constraints on training people with disabilities and on the types of data that they are able to collect and analyse. I would be interested in supporting a PhD that considers these questions in detail in the context of a programme of peer-researcher with disabilities in a low resource setting.

Alex Mold

Topics of interest:

  • The history of public health, especially in post-war Britain
  • The history of drugs
  • The history of patient activism

Clare Chandler

  • Topics of interest: Anthropology of Antimicrobial Resistance: practice-based approach to understanding care of humans and animals in the wake of antimicrobials. Ideally with a focus in Uganda, eg amongst nomadic pastoralists.

Matthew Quaife

  • Topics of interest: The economics of infectious diseases, specifically HIV and other blood borne viruses, including cost-effectiveness analysis, demand side economics (predicting uptake and behaviour), and behavioural/experimental economics work.

Sanjay Kinra

Topics of interest: Incentivising fruit and vegetable consumption in rural India using behavioural economics approaches. A public private partnership will be developed to create incentives/rewards scheme for people to consume more fruit and vegetable in villages of APCAPS cohort study, followed by a feasibility study/pilot trial in 6 villages. It will require advanced quantitative statistical skills so will be suitable for non-EU students as well.
