Overview

I am primarily interested in decision making and priority setting around resource mobilization and allocation for health systems development.

I currently work on the Decade of Vaccine Economics (DoVE) Return on Investment analysis. My work includes economic modeling of the costs of immunization programs and coordination of a core advisory group comprising stakeholders from key global health organizations. My previous work at Gavi (2017) and WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research (2017-18) focused on prioritization of vaccine investment and standardization of investment cases for vaccines and immunization programs.

I recently supported Working Group 3 of the WHO Independent High-level Commission on NCDs and co-authored a report on potential business models that involve private sector support for national responses in preventing and controlling NCDs.
