Research interests

My current research focuses on economic aspects of health and nutrition internationally. This includes cost-effectiveness, cost, and prioritization of interventions of many kinds. I have particular expertise in micronutrients, undernutrition, the double-burden of nutrition, but also a wide range of other interventions. I have a current project on the cost-effectiveness of walk-in counselling services in Ontario, an area where little previous research exists.  

Graduate supervision and student opportunities

I am currently accepting applications from graduate students with related research interests in global health and a background in economic issues.
