My research interests relate to global health policy and multi-level governance for health, primarily understanding the impact of new global health institutions and issues on the health systems of low- and middle- resourced settings. Most recently, this has involved examining regional organizations in the Global South and the effect of COVID-19 on health disparities. In addition to my academic work, I am currently a member of the Board of Directors for Health Systems Global.
I have worked for several universities and international organizations, among these Pace University, the United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies (UNU-CRIS); the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), Overseas Development Institute (ODI); UNU World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER); Pan American Health Organization (PAHO); 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.
Moreover, I have taught at the postgraduate level since 2009 at LSHTM; was Visiting Research Fellow at Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia in 2011; and have given guest lectures for several universities around the world.
