I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Health Management and Policy, at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, and an Assistant Professor of Global Public Health. I am also a Director of the Development Innovation Lab (DIL), supervising the Water and Child Health projects, as well as a Visiting Scholar at the Becker Friedman Institute, at the University of Chicago. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Duke University in 2018.
I am an economist studying global health challenges that poor households face in lower and middle-income countries. I use randomized controlled trials and quasi-experimental methods to evaluate tools and policies that can help overcome health issues such as infectious diseases (malaria, HIV, Ebola), maternal and child morbidity and mortality, and chronic malnutrition. I mainly work in Africa (Liberia, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Zambia, DRC, Uganda, and Lesotho), South East Asia (Myanmar, India), and Brazil.
