I am currently working on projects that work towards different aspects of improving project and program evaluation of maternal and child health in low- and middle-income countries. I am interested in health equity from all angles, and particularly in gender equity (in health and more generally).

  • Maternal and child health
  • sexual and reproductive health
  • gender equity
  • program evaluation
  • low- and middle-income countries
