  • Conducted a retrospective review of antibiotic prescribing in acute illness (BMJ open. 2018;8(7):e022250. doi: 10.1136/bmjopen-2018-022250).
  • Completed social science studies on local conceptions of illness, medicine, and the role of point of care CRP testing (Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2018;98(6):1661-70 and Soc Sci Med. 2018;202:1-12).
  • Demonstrated a modest reduction in antibiotic prescribing with use of standalone CRP testing in the community in acutely febrile patients in Southeast Asia – results of the CRP RCT (Lancet Global Health. 2019; 7(1):e119-e131).
