My research focuses on mortality at very early ages globally.

In particular, I am interested in understanding the role of preterm birth and fetal growth restriction in generating excess mortality during the late fetal and neonatal periods in south Asia and western Africa through international comparisons.

I am also developing models of mortality to help monitor progress below age 5 years. I am currently working on applications to better assess the quality of vital registration systems in different contexts.

I have also contributed to the development of the “Under-5 Mortality Database” focused on high-income countries within the project “Global Age Patterns of Under-5 mortality” funded by the US National Institute of Health (NIH).
