My main research interest is in malaria epidemiology. Before re-joining the School in 2007, I worked for the Malaria Research Programme of the South African Medical Research Council. I was president of the South African Statistical Association in 2006/7.
I co-organise the Intensive Course in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics. I also teach on the study units Statistical Methods in Epidemiology, Epidemiology and Control of Malaria, and Extended Epidemiology.
Currently my main research focus is the evaluation of comprehensive malaria control interventions; cluster randomised trials evaluating vector control tools and the potential benefit of combing malaria vector control interventiones, in particular long lasting insecticidal nets (LLIN) and indoor residual spraying (IRS); the impact of insecticide resistance on the effectiveness of insecticide-based malaria vector control tools; the epidemiology of malaria elimination.
