Biography

I am a Lecturer in Health Economics and Policy at the Department of Health Policy and Management at Yale University. My main research interests are in the field of health and health care delivery issues in both developed and developing countries. I am also interested in applied microeconomics, development economics, public policy, global health, neuroeconomics, and genoeconomics.

From August 2014 to July 2016, under supervision of Prof. Elizabeth Bradley, I worked on developing professional and post-graduate programs in health economics and financing at the University of Rwanda for Human Resources for Health (HRH) program—a medical training and health management program—financed by the U.S. government. During my stay in Rwanda, I also advised the Ministry of Health (Rwanda) about ways to make its flagship idea of Community Health Workers Cooperatives financially sustainable.
