Migration Health Research Area/Expertise:
I have broad migrant health interests and have worked on a wide range of issues across a range of domains including public and international health, global health politics and policy, global development policy, health and human rights, and related issues. I have worked over the years on different aspects of migration health with a strong emphasis on health systems, community development and engagement, the right to health, and have also focused on particular settings such as those affecting some of the least developed states and countries emerging from periods of conflict and instability. I teach, supervise higher degree research students, and have extensive international and personal networks many of which relate to migration, health, and development.
