I am an Epidemiologist with degrees in human sciences and epidemiology. My current area of focus is on infection prevention and control in maternity units in low and middle-income countries. I started working for LSHTM in 2013 within the Merck for Mothers project. Prior to this I have worked with Merlin in London and Juba, South Sudan, and as a Consultant for the OECD in the UK. I was also a Young Professional Intern at the HIV-AIDS Unit for UNODC in Jakarta, Indonesia. I hold a BA in Human Sciences from the University of Oxford and an MSc in Epidemiology at LSHTM.
I teach on in-house courses in statistics, epidemiology and public health - Statistics for Epidemiology and Population Health (STEPH), Statistical Methods for Epidemiology (SME), and Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases (ECCD).
I am currently working on projects funded by the Soapbox Collaborative, a Scottish Charity, aimed at understanding and improving clean birth practices to reduce maternal and neonatal infections. I am leading on a cross-sectional survey investigating the behavioural determinants of hand hygiene among birth attendants in Tanzania.
