Dr Victoria Simms
BSc MSc PhD
I joined the School in 2011. Before coming here I spent five years with the Cicely Saunders Institute at King's College London, where I did my PhD on patient-centred problems at HIV diagnosis. Before that I worked on trachoma surveys in The Gambia and Sudan. I completed the Public Health in Developing Countries MSc at the School in 2005.
I am a module co-ordinator for Design and Analysis of Epidemiological Studies (DANES), with Christian Bottomley. I also teach on Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases, Basic Epidemiology and data management.
I work on randomised controlled trials in the areas of HIV, adherence to antiretroviral therapy and mental health, including children and adolescents. Most of my research is based in Zimbabwe.
