My research interests include evaluation of injury programs and development of innovative quantitative models to address public health issues, focusing on low- and middle-income countries. I have extensively worked and published in program evaluation, measurement of injury burden, and child injuries. In the field, I am managing a multiple-year community-based drowning prevention project in rural Bangladesh and the evaluation component of a global road safety project in Shanghai, China and HCM City, Vietnam.

I teach Evaluation of Safety Interventions (primary instructor) and Systems Science Modeling (co-instructor).
