Research interests

My research seeks to better understand the social and structural determinants of global child health and to identify innovative approaches to address key challenges limiting children’s potential.

My goal is to do applied work that is anchored in field realities and useful to communities and for policy making. My research draws on a wide range of methods designed to improve evidence-based policy and practice in global health, including impact evaluation, cost-effectiveness analysis and priority setting, evidence syntheses, implementation science, and approaches to integrate concerns for equity and justice into health evaluation and intervention. I am particularly interested in community-based research and in the potential of community engagement approaches to improve health and development outcomes. My current projects focus on equitable access to childhood vaccines globally and in India.
