I am a micro economist with experience studying the development of human capital ; poverty and inequality; and the relationship between the two in low- and middle-income countries. I read for a MSc in Economics from Development from the University of Oxford and a PhD in Economics from the University of London. My PhD thesis examined the socio-economic determinants and impact of long-term undernutrition among young children in rural Tanzania, using a comprehensive longitudinal dataset.
At the IGH, I work with multi-disciplinary teams on the economic evaluation of innovative community based health interventions that aim to improve maternal and child health as well as children's nutrition, growth and development in low- and middle-income countries. I am currently working across several research sites in India, Pakistan, Mozambique, Kenya and Papua New Guinea.
My current work is primarily focussed on the economic evaluation of these community based health interventions; women's agency and capability; the relationship between poverty, inequality and health outcomes; and the strengthening of human resources for health.
