Currently, I am conducting research in several areas of domestic and global health politics and policy. The first area focuses on a comparative analysis of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa’s) response to disease. I am finishing a new book, as well as journal articles, comparing the BRICS nations and their response to HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB), obesity, and the type-2 diabetes epidemic. My second area of research examines the relationship between democratic transitions, electoral systems, and health inequalities in several emerging economies. Another area of research examines the utility of institutional theory in accounting for domestic and international health agency response to disease. And finally, my work investigates the evolution and adaptive capacity of international health organizations and donors in response to country healthcare needs.
