My research integrates political economy and public health. Currently, I am focusing on three areas of health and development: i) macro-social and -economic determinants of health; ii) political economy of global health and iii) comparative healthcare systems.
The first branch seeks to understand the causes of the devastating mortality crisis that occurred after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The second branch evaluates the current and changing roles of global institutions, states, NGOs, the private sector, civil society and the interactions among them for control of chronic and infectious diseases. The final branch seeks to model and analyze the effects of market forces on patient decision-making, medical errors, and access to and quality of healthcare.
