After acquiring MD. from Kochi Medical School in 1985, I worked for children with disability. I acquired Masters in Tropical Paediatrics from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in 1995, with the dissertation “ Pneumocystis Pneumonia in HIV infected children in Malawi”, and Ph.D. from Faculty of Medicine, University of Liverpool in 2002 with the thesis “Epidemiology and microbiology of acute respiratory infections in children in an urban poor area in Nairobi, Kenya and molecular epidemiology of RS virus”. I joined vaccine trials for pertussis and measles in Ghana. I worked for humanitarian assistance in the former Yugoslavia, the former Zaire, Iraq, Afghanistan, Honduras and South Sudan with AMDA, Peace Wind Japan, UNHCR, and UNICEF. I have consulted and coordinated on community health, health system strengthening, epidemiology on infectious diseases and NCD in Sri Lanka, Kenya, Ghana, Fiji and Philippines and for local capacity development for health system research and epidemiology.
I will be teaching Global Health I, Child Health I, Child Health II, Community Health I, and Emergency Assistance I at the TMGH, and also supervising Long Term Internship for MPH course. Currently I am teaching child health and pediatric diseases in MTM and TTM courses, and current epidemiological transition and health system research at the phD Leading program. Previously I taught Overview of Global Health, Child Health, and Emergency Assistance at the Graduate School of International Health Development, along with supervision for long term internship for MPH students.
I have been studying aid effectiveness, particularly on aid fragmentation and its effect on health system. I participated in randomized control trials for several vaccines in Ghana, and did clinical and microbiological (molecular biological) study on RS virus and pneumocystis pneumonia in Malawi, cohort study for ARI in children in Kenya and NCD especially cardiovascular diseases and diabetes in Sri Lanka as well as research on referral system in Ghana, and supervision and health information system in Kenya along with overuse of antibiotics, disease replacement under polymicrobial status. I am also engaged in study on access and seeking behavior in children with disability in the Philippines.
