Migration Health Research Area/Expertise:
My work in research and policy focuses on systems thinking for urban health. My doctoral training in epidemiology touched on the role of mobility in urban malaria risk. More recently, I have become interested in systemic issues related to migration and urban health, potentially including, but not limited to: the mechanisms by which migration impacts resilience and health in origin and destination communities; the role of municipal governments in migration policy; the impacts of migration on achievement of the SDGs; and the lessons to be learned from South-South efforts to manage migration.
