I am an economist with a focus on global health.
My research agenda is to build an evidence basis on improving global access to health care in a changing disease environment. Specifically, I examine how health systems and populations respond to the rise of noncommunicable diseases as the leading cause of death globally, while facing increasingly frequent outbreaks of zoonotic diseases.

In this, my academic profile comprises
i) high-impact, large-scale, interdisciplinary projects – providing evidence on the global state of health care; and
ii) evidence-based impact evaluations of health interventions – using experimental and quasi-experimental methods.
