I am the Director of the Centre for Evaluation at LSHTM. I am a senior lecturer with a focus in social epidemiology and public health evaluation. My primary interest in recent years has been in the socioeconomic epidemiology of HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis and in developing interventions to address these public health issues.
I co-developed, co-organise and do much of my teaching the Term 2 module in Social Epidemiology. I also teach and give lectures on a variety of other courses in Basic Epidemiology, the summer Intensive Courses in Epidemiology and Meidcal Statistics, AIDS, Health Promotion Theory and Principles and Practice of Health Promotion. I also contribute to teaching on the first term course Extended Epidemiology.
I specialises in quantitative and mixed-method research on how interventions and policies determined outside the public health sector influence infectious diseases and social inequalities in these. My research has used a wide array of methods including cluster randomised trials, systematic reviews, cohort, case-control and cross-sectional studies as well as mixed-methods research incorporating qualitative, policy analysis and participatory techniques. I led the quantitative and process research aspects of the Intervention with Microfinance for AIDS and Gender Equity IMAGE study in South Africa, one of the earliest cluster randomised trials of a development intervention on health outcomes.
