I am a Research Fellow in Economics at the Centre for Health Service Economics & Organisation of the University of Oxford, an Associate Member of Nuffield College, a Research Associate at the Centre for the Study of African Economies of the University of Oxford, and a Dondena (Center for Research and Social Dynamics) Research Affiliate at Bocconi University. From November 2017 I am visiting ISER, University of Essex.

My main research interests are in health, development and family economics. I am particularly interested in global health problems. My current work studies the determinants of children’s health and development, the impact of early life shocks on later outcomes, and violence against women and children. I have also done some work on statistical modelling for infectious diseases and on the evaluation of vaccination programs. To investigate my research questions I use micro-data from across developed (mainly US and UK) and developing countries (mainly Africa).
