My research interests interests lie at the intersection of politics and public health, more specifically in infectious diseases and the political control and possible prevention of the same.

This broadly speaking involves, but is not limited to, the political economy and comparative politics of public health interventions aimed at curbing infectious disease outbreaks, such as immunization campaigns, the effect of different types of incentive schemes on individual immunization decisions and how altruism and other types of other-regarding preferences can be utilized to overcome the collective action problem involved in reaching heard immunity.
