I am an Associate Professor in Health Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science in the Department of Health Policy.

In my research, I use economic analysis and tools to contribute to current health policy debates in low- and middle income countries, particularly in the areas of health workforce and the demand for healthcare services.

My past work includes research on the role of incentives and altruism in choosing rural jobs in South Africa, the impact of removing user charges on health-seeking behaviour in Zambia, or the use of economic lab experiments to study the effects of provider remuneration.
