  • Associate Professor
  • Institute for Global Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

I am a development economist and I have been studying health behaviours of vulnerable groups over the last ten year. After receiving my PhD in Economics from the University of Otago in New Zealand, I joined the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine as a postdoctoral researcher and worked there during seven years before joining the Institute for Global Health in 2019. 

In 2019, I was awarded the UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship to identify new drivers of HIV among young women in Africa and to build a research group working on this thematic. I am also the recipient of several fellowships and grants from UK research councils and international organisations that focus on health of vulnerable groups in Africa.

Research Summary

My research aims to understand behaviours in order to improve the design of health policies in low-income countries. I use quasi-experimental designs, lab-in-the field experiments and randomised controlled trials to estimate the behavioural response to health policies and to identify the factors of health and well-being among vulnerable groups in low-income countries. My research interest focuses on health of vulnerable women globally and encompass several areas of global health (HIV/AIDS, nutrition, family planning and mental health).
