I am an Assistant Professor in Epidemiology and a Consultant in Public Health Medicine (Health Protection).

I trained in medicine at Cambridge University in 2002, then worked for several years as a hospital doctor rotating through clinical specialties including general medicine, paediatric surgery, emergency medicine, anaesthetics and clinical microbiology. Subsequently, I completed the Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and obtained my PhD in Infectious Disease Epidemiology from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) in 2011.

I trained in public health medicine in London working in a range of public health settings at local, national and international level, including Public Health England, NHS England and WHO for the Ebola reponse in Sierra Leone. I currently work as a Consultant in Health Protection for Public Health England in the North West London Health Protection Team.

I joined LSHTM in February 2017.

Research

I am currently working on the evaluation of the Adolescent 360 programme, an innovative approach to adolescent sexual and reproductive health programming in Ethiopia, Nigeria and Tanzania using human-centred design.

I have previously worked on evaluation studies of several UK child immunisation programmes, including rotavirus and pneumococcal vaccines.

My PhD research focused on rotavirus gastroenteritis in England and Wales using surveillance data to understand transmission and to predict the potential impact of rotavirus vaccination.
