I completed a BA in Human Sciences at Oxford and an MSc in Epidemiology at LSHTM (2002). My doctorate investigated the association between household measures of socio-economic status and child malnutrition in children from Soweto, South Africa.

I am a tutor for masters students on MSc Epidemiology and MSc Public Health in Developing Countries (PHDC), and teach on a number of epidemiology and statistics modules, as well as Epidemiology and Control of Malaria.
I am a member of the AMFm Independent Evaluation team assessing the effectiveness of Phase 1 of the Affordable Medcines Facility- malaria (AMFm). AMFm is a multi-country assessment of an initiative by The Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria to improve the affordability of and access to quality-assured artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) to treat malaria.
Previously at LSHTM I have worked on a cluster randomised controlled trial of Intermittent Preventive Treatment for malaria in Infants (IPTi) in southern Tanzania.
I have conducted a number of systematic reviews that focus on malaria control and health systems.
In addition to my work in malaria, I also have an interest in neonatal health and survival and have worked on a pooled analysis of data from four East African countries, estimating the risk of neonatal mortality associated with low birth weight, small for gestational age and preterm birth.
I am a member of the the Malaria Centre, MRC Tropical Epidemiology Group (TEG), and the Centre for Maternal, Reproductive and Child Health (MARCH).
