Before joining the school I worked for two years as an epidemiologist at the Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment through the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training.

During this time I was involved in a variety of research and surveillance projects and outbreak investigations and I worked on topics ranging from mumps to chlamydia. I also consulted with the World Health Organisation on Polio vaccination in Nigeria. Prior to the Netherlands I was based in Zambia with an HIV Research group.

 I have a BSc in Natural Sciences from the University of Birmingham and an MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases from LSHTM.

Teaching & Research

I am a Tutor and manage the Moodle discussion forum for the Epidemiology of Communicable Diseases in Developing Countries distance learning module. I also teach on some in-house courses (seminars and lectures). I act as a personal tutor and supervise MSc summer projects.

I am currently working with the Environmental Health Group on research into hygiene and behaviour change. I am primarily working on the design and evaluation of a multiple behaviour change intervention to tackle diarrhoea in Lusaka Province, Zambia. My wider research interests and previous projects include work on vaccine-preventable diseases and soil-transmitted helminths.
