My research is focused on the epidemiology of chronic lung diseases in low- and middle-income countries, as well as the implementation of interventions for improving chronic respiratory disease outcomes in these settings. My research interests are chronic lung disease epidemiology, implementation science, mixed methods research, global health, and building local capacity for public health research and training in LMICs.
