Hi, I’m Ian! I specialise in the economics of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services.
The projects I am currently working on are listed here.
I’m an Assistant Professor in Health Economics at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), and have worked in WASH research and policy for about 15 years. I am in the Environmental Health Group but also part of the Global Health Economics Centre where I completed my PhD. Before joining LSHTM, I established and grew a six-strong water team at Oxford Policy Management (2012-2017), leading £5 million of WASH consulting projects for the World Bank, DFID and UNICEF. Prior to that, I was in WaterAid’s policy team (2007-2011) working on a variety of research and advocacy, including a secondment to Timor-Leste.
