I am a public health specialist with experience in both quantitative and qualitative research in addition to programme implementation. I received my MPH in Health Behaviour and Health Education from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a focus on East Africa, and my PhD at LSHTM while coordinating a multi-country trial in Asia and Latin America to improve child health.
I am interested in conducting health policy and systems research to improve reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health in vulnerable populations and in low- and middle-income countries. Until recently, I was the technical coordinator for the health policy and systems technical working group as part of Countdown to 2030 (formerly Countdown to 2015) — a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional consortium that uses country-specific data to stimulate and support country progress towards achieving global goals tracking maternal and child mortality.

I co-organise the Family Planning Programmes module, and contribute to teaching and tutoring on the Reproductive and Sexual Health Research MSc course, and on the Health Policy, Process and Power module.
I currently work on the following three research studies across LSHTM's EPH and PHP Faculties with a focus on health systems and policy research to improve women’s and children’s health in crises settings and low- and middle-income countries:
1. A study examining the mechanisms and effects of performance based financing to improve maternal and child health in Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
2. A mixed method study to assess the evidence base for providing sexual and reproductive health interventions including the Minimum Initial Service Package (MISP) in humanitarian crises settings.
