Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests centre on the politics of development and North-South relations, in particular the interface between poverty, sustainable development, disease and political economy. I have become increasingly interested in the politics of HIV/AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa, especially with respect to matters of international political economy, governance and policymaking.
