My research interests relate to global health governance and diplomacy; sustainability of donor aid; the role of regional organizations in health policy; and health systems strengthening, primarily concerning low and middle-income settings.
I have worked for several international organizations and universities, among these the United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS); Overseas Development Institute (ODI); UNU World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER); Pan American Health Organization (PAHO); the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM); and the University of South Florida. I have also conducted research for the HIV/AIDS Department at the World Health Organization, Committee for Development Policy (CDP-DESA) at the United Nations Headquarters and led a research project commissioned by the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
In addition, I have taught at the postgraduate level since 2009 at LSHTM; was Visiting Research Fellow at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in 2011; and Guest Lecturer at Maastricht University and Duke Kunshan University from 2014-16.
