I have researched, consulted, and co-ordinated projects for International Organisations, such the World Bank, the OECD, and the USAID.
My research has been funded by leading funding bodies, such as the ESRC, the US National Institutes of Health, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; and has been featured in the mainstream media, such as the Economist, the BBC, and the Guardian.
