Research

My research examines the social and political dynamics shaping global health policy and practice. My PhD thesis explored how the international Safe Motherhood Initiative strategically embraced evidence-based policy-making and technocratic arguments to position itself within an increasingly competitive global health enterprise. More recently, I have examined the way in which public-private partnerships shape global health discourse and practice, with a case study of how Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance has captured broader debates about health system strengthening. Current research projects examine donors' and NGOs' role in the transfer of reproductive health policy between global, national and local levels, and civil society strategies for advancing health equity. 

At the Centre for Development and the Environment, I convene the Power and Politics in Global Health research group, which approaches global health issues from a critical, social scientific perspective and is part of the University of Oslo's virtual Centre for Global Health

During the past decade, I have also collaborated on several large-scale public health and health systems research projects led by London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, where I am honorary lecturer. This includes a pioneering inter-disciplinary study on the the causes and consequences of pregnancy-related morbidity and mortality in Burkina Faso, and evaluations of donor-funded interventions. 

I currently hold a Young Scientist Grant from the Norwegian Research Council's Global Health and Vaccination Research Programme. My research has also been funded by the Norwegian Research Council's NORGLOBAL programme, the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

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.
