Bio:

As a health economist, my primary area of interest is in health care financing. My related areas of interest  include – economic evaluation, human resources for health, and program process and impact evaluations. I also teach graduate level courses in health care financing. I have extensive research experience working on these issues in India and other low and middle-income countries. I have conducted studies on patient health care costs in India and Afghanistan, resource tracking for HIV/AIDS, TB, and Malaria control programs in Mozambique and Senegal, and evaluated national health insurance programs and community health insurance schemes in India and Afghanistan. I have conducted evaluations of clinician knowledge and skills in primary health care contexts. I have carried out experiments to identify incentives for retention of health workers in underserved areas, conducted impact evaluations of quality interventions, conducted facility audits of health centers, and hospitals. I have extensive experience in designing, conducting, and analyzing large sample surveys of households and health facilities.
