I am a micro economist with over 8 years of 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 in child health, nutrition, growth and development in low- and middle-income countries. I am currently working across four sites in India, Pakistan, Mozambique and Uganda. 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.
