I am a Research Associate in the Department of Global Health and Population at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. My research interests are in using mixed-methods approaches in applied research and evaluation to assess both the implementation and impact of interventions to address women's health issues. Of particular interest are maternal health, family planing and sexual and reproductive health. At Harvard, I am the Ghana lead for a four-country impact evaluation of reproductive health program led by Iqbal Shah and David Canning. In this role I serve as the primary liaison with our in-country partner to conduct research studies on both past and current implementations of the program.
Before coming to Harvard, I worked as a Research Scientist at the Boston University School of Public Health, conducting both implementation effectiveness and impact studies on a materntiy homes intervention in Zambia. Previously I served as the co-Principlal Investigator of a large program to improve nutrition medicine in Vietnam. For this role I received the Medal for Peoples' Health, awarded by the Vietnam Ministry of Health. My dissertation research evaluated the impact of Saving Mothers, Giving Life, a multi-level intervention, as it was implemented in Kalomo District in Zambia, using mixed-methods.
