I trained in electrical and computer engineering, before doing a PhD in Science, Technology and Environmental Policy. I now direct a research programme that combines concepts, data and methods from a range of environmental, health, social and quantitative sciences to answer important questions in global health.  We collect and analyse primary field data, and also develop and apply analytical models to a combination of primary and secondary data.  You can learn about our research and about the members of our highly interdisciplinary research group through the Global Environmental Health Research Group page.
