Academic interests

Global health; Medical anthropology; Governance; Policy; Health systems; Reproductive health; Maternal health

My research spans the interface of medical anthropology and global public health, engaging both global policy and the local social, political and economic realities of health. I lead SUM’s Power and Politics in Global Health research group, which brings together scholars from anthropology, development studies, political science and international relations. The group convenes the Global Health Unpacked public seminar series, and hosts as a national network of social scientists working within global health.

My research advances a critical ethnographic perspective on the social and political dynamics global health policy and practice, within the context of blurring boundaries between public and private spheres and actors. I have studied public-private partnerships including Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and the Partnership for Maternal Newborn and Child Health, and donor agencies and NGO’ influence on national-level health reproductive health policies in African countries. My current interests include civil society engagement in global health governance processes.

As Honorary Assistant Professor at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, I have also contributed anthropological and policy expertise to several large-scale international public health studies and evaluations, with a focus on reproductive and maternal health and health systems challenges in Burkina Faso.

I have a Young Scientist Grant from the Research Council of Norway's global health programme, and have received funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (UK), and the UK Department for International Development. 

I am a member of the Young Academy of Norway, an association of early and mid-career young scholars selected for the excellence and impact of their research and their commitment to working for the advancement of issues of importance to society and to young scientists.

Background 

Before joining the University of Oslo as a postdoc in 2010, I was research fellow at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (2002-2010). I have a PhD from the University of London (LSHTM) (2010), an MSc in medical anthropology from University College London (2002) and a BA in psychology and social studies of medicine from McGill University (2001)
