Lucy Tusting MSc

Research Degree Student


Lucy's research interests are in the epidemiology and control of vector-borne disease, with a focus on the social epidemiology of malaria, intersectoral disease control and the synthesis of evidence on vector control interventions to inform evidence-based policy. Lucy has a PhD and MSc (2010, Distinction) from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine and a first degree from Durham University. Her doctorate investigated the relationship between agriculture, poverty and malaria in sub-Saharan Africa. 

Since completing her PhD, Lucy has taken up a postdoctoral fellowship with the Malaria Atlas Project, Oxford, where she is supported by an MRC Skills Development Fellowship.
