She has directed multi-country technical assistance projects in health sector reform and financing, and in pharmaceutical sector policy and financing. In long-term positions in Asia, the Caribbean, and the Middle East, she has been instrumental in the establishment and development of organizations (working in pharmaceutical supply, reproductive health and HIV/AIDS, or training and research), and her doctoral research considered the effects of foreign aid on indigenous health sector organizations. Her research interests combine qualitative research (e.g. analytical case studies, focus group discussion, stakeholder consultation) with financial and marketing analysis (e.g. costing, break-even analysis, incentives analysis, pricing strategies).
