For the past 12 years, I have been working as a health economist with the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where my research has focussed on the delivery and financing of health care in low and middle income countries. In 2012 I joined the School of Public Health and Community Medicine at UNSW (part time) where I contribute to teaching on the Comparative Health Systems and Economic Evaluation teaching modules. I currently lead 2 multi-country research studies. One is an AusAID-funded study on equity in health care fianncing in Timor Leste and Fiji. The other study, funded by the Gates Foundation through the ACT Consortium at LSHTM, investigates the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of provider interventions to improve health worker practice in providing treatment for uncomplicated malaria in Cameroon and Nigeria. Past projects have included economic evaluations of different public health interventions in Togo, Kenya, Tanzania, The Gambia and Malawi. I continue to work for UNSW and LSHTM.
