Carla is an expert in analysis of household survey data and socio-economic indicators in low income countries.

 

 

 

Since 2005 Carla has been focusing on population Issues in developing countries, and specifically adolescent fertility, maternal reproductive behavior and health facilities in sub Saharan African Countries. Her PhD thesis, undertaken at Dept. of Politics, Institutions and History and Dept. of Statistics, Università di Bologna Alma Mater Studiorum, Italy aimed at analysing the geographic and socioeconomic determinants of accessing health care facilities by young women in Kenya. During her studies she gained a multidisciplinary profile ranging from development economics to Sub Saharan Africa History. Carla also conducted field research in Kenya, where she interviewed young women in rural areas and urban slums on reproductive behaviours. Part of her thesis work was presented at the European Population Conference, 2010, Vienna.

In 2010 she was visiting research fellow at the Dept. of Social Statistics and Demography of the School of Social Sciences, University of Southampton, for six months, under the supervision of Professor Nyovani J Madise. She was Research Assistant at the Evaluation Unit of the International Labour Organization in Geneva for six months in 2012.

Since 2013, Carla has been a research fellow in Geography and Environment, University of Southampton and works on a variety of projects led by WorldPop Project and Flowminder Foundation. She was appointed in Geography and Environment in 2013 to work on "High resolution gridded poverty surface development" Project at the University of Southampton, under the supervision of Dr. Andrew J Tatem and Dr. Peter W. Gething, (University of Oxford) and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

During her spare time, Carla enjoys going to concerts, reading crime books, practicing yoga, hiking and trying to find the best pizza available.

Research projects

High-resolution gridded poverty surface development  

The project aims to develop new geostatistical methodologies to generate gridded population and poverty datasets and associated spatial uncertainty metrics from a variety of household survey data and geospatial covariates. By demonstrating a proof-of-concept and delivering modelled poverty surfaces for target countries, this work may initiate a longer term objective to map a broader suite of demographic indicators and provide a resource for a diverse range of policy, academic and operational users.

Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Under the supervision of Dr Andrew Tatem (Geography and Environment, University of Southampton) and Dr Peter Gething (Zoology, University of Oxford).
