I began tutoring MSc students at the school in 2005 when I joined the school in September 2005 as a research student. After completing my PhD in 2010, I continued working as a Distance Learning (DL) tutor in Statistics and supervision of MSc projects.
Previously, I worked with MRC/UVRI Uganda Research Unit on AIDS as the Statistician on the Pnuemococcal Vaccine Trial (1996-1998), the trial Statistician for the Fluconazole trial (2004-2005), and was the Head of the Statistics section (1999-2005). After completing my PhD I rejoined MRC Uganda unit as a Senior Statistical Epidemiologist to supervise statistical services for epidemiology and social science studies.
I have a BStat (hons) degree from Makerere University, a Graduate diploma in Statistics and an MSc(Epidemiology & Population Health) from Australian National University.

University teaching experience started in 2001, when I lectured MSc (Clinical Epidemiology) in Biostatistics at Makerere University. From April 2002 to December 2003, I supervised an MRC Rogers Fellow whose topic was “The Development of a Simulation model of the HIV epidemic in rural SouthWestern Uganda, and Investigation of the potential impact of various interventions.
At LSHTM, I have tutored on various Statistics and Epidemiology courses including: STEPH, SME, ADRS, and the Intensive Course in Epidemiology & Medical Statistics. Currently, I'm a Distance Learning (DL) tutor in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy on PHM102 Basic Statistics for Public Health and Policy and PHM305 Projects.
