Research Interests

Applied and medical anthropology, West Africa, Ghana, herbal medicine use, international development, malaria interventions and their acceptability, public health policy, knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) research surrounding malaria, adoption and diffusion of innovations, and social network analysis.

Currently, I am interested in knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) research surrounding the perceived causes, diagnostics, treatments and symptoms of malaria in West Africa, especially among herbalists. I am also interested in the evaluation of malaria interventions and those which integrate traditional medicine and Western biomedical knowledge and practices, particularly those focusing on Artemisia annua and afra for malaria
