Members introduction

I am both an agricultural and health economist, conducting research on the economics of introducing and scaling up public health interventions and new technologies related to reproductive, maternal and child health and nutrition interventions.  I also conduct research on the integration of agriculture, health and nutrition. Most recently, I implemented and evaluated an integrated agriculture and health project for pregnant women and their children in Western Kenya.
