I lead the interdisciplinary Global Health Politics research group at the Centre for Development and the Environment, and am Deputy Director of the Independent Panel on Global Governance for Health, an initiative to follow up the Lancet-University of Oslo Commission's agenda on the political determinants of health inequity.

My research advances a critical, ethnographic perspective on the social and political dynamics shaping global health research and policy. I am particularly interested in how global public-private partnerships, scientific communities and civil society coalitions shape and challenge prevailing understandings and approaches to global public health.

I currently lead a project on Public-private cooperation in pandemic preparedness and response, as well as the Smartphone pandemic project, which examines the social and political implications of digital technologies in the Covid-19 response in Norway, Sierra Leone and Myanmar. I am participate in the Nordic Civil Societies project, focusing on transnational activism and global engagement. 

As Honorary Associate Professor at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, I have collaborated on several large-scale, interdisciplinary studies, notably longitudinal research into the social consequences of pregnancy-related illness and catastrophic healthcare expenditure in Burkina Faso. 

My research has been funded by a Norwegian Research Council (NRC) Young Scientist Grant (GLOBVAC) and project grants from the NRC, Economic and Social Research Council and UK Department for International Development (DFID).

As a founding member of the Young Academy of Norway, I was elected board member (2017-2018) and Chair (2018-2019).

I am the current Chair of the University of Oslo's branch of the Norwegian Association of Researcher's University and am an elected board member of the Norwegian Forum for Global Health Research.

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).

Teaching

I convene SUM4200 - Key Issues in Development and Environment and SUM4023 - The Political Economy of Global Health. In 2020, I will convene SUM4503 – The Politics of Pandemics: Security, Development and Global Governance Challenges (5 credits).
