I have been working on health policy and health systems analysis for more than 20 years in almost every corner of our planet. I am a policy wonk, through and through. I have had the privilege of working in the World Bank, the Center for Global Development, the Gates Foundation as well as the Brookings Institution. I’m trained as an economist, and I understand the profession’s tools well enough to know their limitations as well as their strengths. I find the topics I work on professionally deeply interesting, but I’m intrigued by many other topics as well.
