My main research interest has been to generate evidence for best practice in the control and elimination of the blinding eye condition trachoma, a neglected tropical disease (NTD). Within this focus, I contribute to work ranging from basic biochemistry and genetic epidemiology of the causative organism, Chlamydia trachomatis, to polilcy development and economics of control programmes. More broadly, I wish to test opportunities for synergising the activities of NTD programmes in the mapping, control, monitoring and post-elimination phases of their work.
