My research focuses on the political economy of health, forms of inequality, development, gender, race, labor, and labor markets/informal economies.
One of my projects uses interview-based field research with over 70 nurses to examine the demand for paid and unpaid care work and the impacts on nurses in a public hospital in Johannesburg. The fieldwork is published in PLOS ONE and has contribute to my other publications in Preventive Medicine, AIDS, and Gender, Work & Organization, among others.
I completed my PhD in Economics at the University of Massachusetts in 2012. I am now an Assistant Professor of Global and Intercultural Studies at Miami University of Ohio and hold a joint appointment for research with Ezintsha, in the Wits Reproductive Health and HIV Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand.
I recently co-founded a community for people interested in Feminist Radical Political Economy (FRPE)
