Alexia is the Finance and Administrative Officer for the African Health Observatory - Platform on Health Systems and Policies (AHOP). The partnership includes WHO’s African Health Observatory, the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies and leading research institutions in Ethiopia, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Senegal, with further expansion planned. The Platform seeks to promote evidence-informed policy-making in the African region by synthesising existing research and generating new evidence on health systems performance. Alexia establishes and maintains the administrative and financial functions required to support the smooth running of AHOP.
Before joining the LSE, Alexia worked to facilitate collaboration between Academia and Industry around highly innovative projects seeking European funding to tackle key societal challenges.
Prior to moving to London, Alexia did an internship at the Belgian Representation to the United Nations in New York where she was in charge of reporting on Security Council meetings and Political Affairs in the Middle East. She also worked as a Research Assistant at the Centre for International Crisis and Conflicts (Universite Catholique de Louvain) where she focussed on the foreign policy of great and middle powers (United States, Russia, Australia). Alexia’s interests are focused on international societal and humanitarian affairs.
