I have an interest in emerging infections and health emergencies and commenced my position as a research fellow with the LSHTM Emergency and Epidemic Data Kit in August 2018 mainly working on a vaccine trial against Ebola virus disease in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. I was work closely with the AViD team to design mixed methods research to be conducted during epidemics.

 

 

Prior to joining LSHTM, I was a clinical PhD fellow with the Wellcome Trust Liverpool Glasgow Centre for Global Health Research evaluating the epidemiology of risk factors for central nervous system infections in Vietnam during which I was based with the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Hanoi.

Teaching

I teach on the following modules: Basic Epidemiology, Analysis and Design of Research Studies and Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases.

Research

I undertook research in Vietnam looking at the spatio-temporal distribution of central nervous system infections and how these relate to environmental and zoonotic risk factors to try to better understand the epidemiology of cases where no pathogen has been found. Additionally, I looked at human movement and contact patterns in relation to risk of acute encephalitis syndrome.

Prior to commencing my PhD I undertook research in Nepal with the University of Liverpool in collaboration with the Programme for Immunization Preventable Diseases, World Health Organization. This evaluated the seroprevalence of Japanese encephalitis and dengue viruses following vaccination against Japanese encephalitis virus.
