I am a health economist with research interests in understanding health system financial sustainability, equity, and efficiency in low and lower-middle income countries, applying behavioral economics to the economic evaluation of public health policy, incentive design for the health workforce, and understanding the medium and long-term causal impact of health investments on non-health sectors. I am also interested in the applied topics of innovative health financing and the integration of donor-funded health investments into domestic health systems, particularly with respect to HIV/AIDS, TB, Malaria, and Vaccines.
I have particular policy and research experience in several countries including: Angola, Bangladesh, Botswana, Bhutan, Ethiopia, Guyana, India, Kenya, Namibia, Romania, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, and Vietnam.
I hold a doctoral degree in Global Health Economics from Harvard University, a M.A. in Global Development Economics from Boston University, and a B.A in International Economics from Boston College. Prior to my appointment at Johns Hopkins, I served as the Senior Economist in the Office of HIV/AIDS at USAID.
