Research synopsis

Currently I co-edit the Journal of Public Health Policy. My co-editor, Phyllis Freeman and I are investigating how to help developing world authors publish in competitive science and policy journals: AuthorAID. I also continue my work on public health policy through the Public Health Advocacy Institute and the project on Scientific Knowledge and Public Policy.
