I have a BSc in Life Sciences from Queen's University, Canada, and both an MSc and a PhD in Epidemiology from the LSHTM. During my PhD, I analysed seasonal influenza in England & Wales using complex statistical models. In the past I have worked on meta-analysis and risk factors for heart disease at the University of Cambridge and on the epidemiology of hepatitis C at the Health Protection Agency, Centre for Infections (UK).
I am a tutor on the distance learning modules Fundamentals of Epidemiology and Advanced Statistical Methods in Epidemiology which form part of the MSc in Epidemiology by distance learning. I was co-module organizer for the in-house MSc module Epidemiology & Control of Communicable Diseases, with Professor Paul Fine, from 2007 until 2011. I used to facilitate the mock outbreak investigation that is part of this module, as well as several other practicals on the module. I also facilitated practicals for the in-house MSc module Extended Epidemiology until autumn 2012.
For my PhD I investigated the impact of antigenic drift in influenza A/H3N2 virus and influenza vaccination of the elderly on incidence of general practice consultations for influenza-like illness and deaths due to pneumonia and influenza in England & Wales.
More recently, I was providing epidemiological and statistical support to a number of malaria research projects associated with the School. These included an evaluation of a Global Fund initiative to increase market share of quality assured antimalarials in several low income countries (Affordable Medicines Facility - malaria), carrying out routine and ad hoc analyses of data from yearly malaria indicator surveys in Equatorial Guinea and providing support on design and statistical issues to studies broadly around disease control and elimination (specifically in relation to malaria) led by colleagues at the MRC unit in The Gambia.
I am taking a career break to spend time with my one-year-old daughter.
