Humanitarian aid; Health services during humanitarian emergencies; Health response to disasters, conflicts and crises; Foreign medical teams; Surgical care in low- and middle-income countries; Global public health; Coordination of humanitarian aid and assistance; War; Refugee emergencies I study the ways in which health needs are established and prioritized during large humanitarian crises such as natural disasters and wars. I specifically focus on understanding and improving the functioning of health systems and services in crises, and understanding public health statistics such as mortality and malnutrition during disasters and wars. I work as a field-based researcher in global public health, specializing in the assessment and mapping of disrupted health systems in post-conflict and post-disaster settings. My most recent work has involved operational field research in Haiti and Sudan, examining the development of health information systems used to assess the availability of essential health resources and services, including the mapping of health facilities. I have experience in the areas of surgical care, access to essential medicines, health systems strengthening, and health services research in several low- and middle-income countries.

Research information:

My current research focuses on the relations between transnational economic integration ("globalization") and social determinants of health: the conditions under which people live and work. How is the emergence of a global marketplace affecting opportunities to lead a healthy life? Who wins, and who loses? How will the worldwide financial crisis we are now experiencing affect health disparities between rich and poor?
