I am a member of the Environmental Health Group at the School, researching water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). I am particularly interested in behaviour change, quantitative methods and the gendered impacts of WASH. I have a BSc in Biochemistry and a Masters in Control of Infectious Diseases, which I completed at LSHTM.

Research

Some of my recent research has included:

  • Assessment of child food contamination in Mozambique
  • Understanding fidelity and compliance for a shared sanitation trial in Mozambique  (MapSan trial)
  • Understanding predictors of sanitation-related psychosocial stress in Mozambique
  • Application of path analysis methods to process evaluations of complex interventions

My current work relates to WASH in schools (WinS), looking at current understanding of the relationship between WinS, health and education in LMICs, as well as the impacts of a comprehensive WinS/menstrual hygiene intervention in Ethiopia and India, with a particular focus on wellbeing and educational outcomes among girls.
