Dr Ilona Carneiro
Distance Learning Tutor
I have been a tutor on the Basic Epidemiology module of the Public Health Distance-Learning Masters course (PHM101) since 2010 and my current focus is on improving online learning and providing information for the public.
I co-edited the 2nd edition of the course textbook in 2011 and authored the 3rd edition of "Introduction to Epidemiology" in 2017.
I was a lecturer in Infectious Disease Epidemiology and have worked at LSHTM since 1997. My overseas research experience involves working on long-term malaria research projects in Tanzania and India. I have provided statistical assistance to malaria intervention trials in Ghana, Bolivia, China and Laos. I have also worked on estimates of the global burden of malaria. Since 2007 I have been based overseas in Madrid, Spain.
When I started at LSHTM in 1997 I briefly worked with Professor Paul Fine on polio and BCG vaccination issues for the WHO. Before joining LSHTM I completed my doctoral thesis in malaria epidemiology at the University of Oxford.
