Heidelberg Institute of Global Health

I am an Assistant Professor of Population Health Policy. My main research aim is to improve the health of older populations in LMICs by studying both health-systems and individual health-related decision-making.

I am currently working on three areas of research:

      1. Evaluating the effect of health-systems-based interventions on population health
      2. Using behavioral science to improve health behaviors and utilization among older individuals
      3. Developing statistical methods for studying population health and identifying health-policy priorities

Before coming to Heidelberg I was a David E. Bell Postdoctoral Fellow at the Harvard Center for Population and Development Studies. I received my PhD in Demography from the Population Studies Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
