As a teacher, Dr. Gell-Redman seeks to introduce students to fundamental aspects of contemporary politics, including public health, development, and migration. His aim in the classroom is to give students the skills to evaluate policies designed to address these issues. To achieve this, he teaches the principles of research design, and, where possible, provide a hands-on introduction to data collection in the field.
The main goal of Dr. Gell-Redman’s research is to understand the mechanisms that link political institutions and politically motivated actors to social welfare outcomes, such as infectious disease rates and infant mortality. His agenda is strongly interdisciplinary, bridging the political economy of development and public health. He employ diverse methods, including survey experiments, field surveys, and archival research.
