I have been working in the MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group within the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at LSHTM since July 2005. Prior to this I was a research associate at Imperial College London working on the government run UK badger culling trial. I completed a PhD in statistics at the University of Strathclyde and an undergraduate degree in statistics at the University of Canterbury.
I teach on the in-house Msc courses Statistics for Epidemiology and Population Health (STEPH) and Advanced Statistical Methods in Epidemiology (ASME). I co-organise the summer projects for the distance learning (DL) Epidemiology MSc with Isolde Birdthistle and Suzanna Francis.
My research interests are in child health and nutrition. I mainly work on projects in Africa and India. I am lead statistician for the NUSTART (nutritional support for adults starting antiretroviral therapy) trial in Tanzania and Zambia investigating the effect of nutritional supplements for malnourished HIV patients on mortality. I am also lead statistician for the START-IPT trial in Uganda investigating the effect of malaria prophylaxis in school aged children on malaria in the community. I also work as part of a team supporting the Bioko Island malaria control program in Equatorial Guinea. I have previously been involved with a number of projects including malaria trials in East Africa, investigating the effect of Vitamin D supplementation on the hospitalisation rates of infants up to six months of age in Dehli, improving TB cure rates in Senegal by decentralising care, investigating the epidemiology of rotavirus in an urban slum in India and trying to improve child growth by giving fortified porridge to infants in Zambia in an RCT.
