I am a Research Fellow in the Environmental Health Group working on the MapSan project in Mozambique. This trial is evaluating the impact of sanitation on health among children living in dense urban areas of Maputo.
Prior to joining LSHTM I was a PhD student at Imperial College London on the WISER project. My research evaluated how effective water treatment processes are against schistosome cercariae, the parasite larvae that lead to schistosomiasis.
I am also the co-founder of a start-up developing a low-cost, automated diagnostic tool for detecting helminth infections.
