I graduated in 2002 from the University of Sheffield with a BSc in Biochemistry & Microbiology. I then made the move from molecular science into epidemiology and public health by studying for the MSc Control of Infectious Diseases at LSHTM.
Since completing my Masters in 2004, I have been involved in a number of different projects at the School, related to malaria and water and sanitation, and more recently visceral leishmaniasis. My interests are in delivery systems for disease control interventions, and monitoring and evaluation of their equity.
I deliver lectures on the Epidemiology & Control of Malaria and Designing Disease Control Programs in Developing Countries in-house modules; I am also a seminar leader for the Applying Principles of Public Health in Developing Countries module. I am a personal tutor for the MSc Public Health in Developing Countries (PHDC).
Current projects include: Deputy Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) Lead for KalaCORE, a DfID-funded consortium for control and elimination of visceral leishmaniasis, supporting national eradication efforts and coordinating with control programmes in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Ethiopia, Sudan and South Sudan; multi-disciplinary evaluation of a community-based intervention to improve prompt & effective treatment of malaria in rural Senegal.
Other recent projects have included: cost effectiveness-evaluation of a national long-lasting insecticide-treated net (LLIN) "hang-up" campaign in Ghana; systematic literature review on community case management of malaria; systematic literature review on effectiveness of strategies strengthening national health service delivery to increase health service access in low income countries; investigation of quality improvement strategies for control of malaria in pregnancy in Kenya & Mali (as part of the Malaria in Pregnancy Consortium).
