I joined LSHTM in 2009 to undertake the MSc in Epidemiology and have remained at the School working on a range of projects in maternal health and HIV research. During this time, I completed my PHD which looked at the contribution of HIV to mortality in pregnant and postpartum women, with particular focus on Eastern and Southern Africa.

Teaching

I teach on the MSc study units "Statisitics for Epidemiology & Population Health", "Extended Epidemiology", "Research, Design & Analysis" and "Statistical Methods in Epidemiology", as well as several short courses including "Advanced Stata course: programming and techniques to make you life easier". I am co-organiser for the distance learning module "Practical Epidemiology".

Research

I currently divide my time working with the ALPHA network, which brings together longitudinal HIV studies in Eastern and Southern Africa, and working on a range of projects in maternal health. As part of the ALPHA network, I have been focussing on understanding patterns of mortality following the introduction of ART. For the maternal health group, I have been supporting senior researchers to prepare a new Maternal Health series for The Lancet, as well as looking at facility capability to provide maternal health care and access to services.
