Research

My research focuses on the application of statistical and epidemiological methods in health research, particularly in child development and health inequity.

I often work in multidisciplinary settings and collaborate with researchers across universities, government agencies and NGOs.

Special research areas include:

  • Causal inference
  • Time series analysis
  • Survey analysis
  • Study designs and methodology
