Profile

I joined the Health Economics and Decision Science (HEDS) section of the School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) as Research Fellow in Health Economics and Decision Modelling in January 2019. I’m currently working on economic evaluation of clinical trials evaluating various paediatric tuberculosis interventions in lower-middle income countries (LMIC). Previously I worked at the University of Bristol, UK where I was involved in evaluating the impact and cost-effectiveness of interventions for hepatitis C virus in low and middle-income countries. Since 2011, I have been carrying out economic evaluation projects in Cambodia, Cameroon, Ireland, Kenya, Myanmar, Pakistan, Uganda, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Research interests

My research interests include economic evaluations of interventions to improve infectious disease control and decision-analytic modelling for cost-effectiveness analysis.

Current Projects

  • Cap-TB and TB SPEED projects on interventions for paediatric TB (UNITAID)
  • Fractures in Sub-Saharan Africa: epidemiology, economic impact and ethnography (FRACTURES-E3) – Wellcome Trust
