I have been a tutor on the Basic Epidemiology module of the Public Health Distance-Learning Masters course (PHM101) since 2010 and am interested in improving teaching materials. I co-edited the 2nd edition of the course textbook in 2011 (, and am currently writing the 3rd edition of "Introduction to Epidemiology".

I was a lecturer in Infectious Disease Epidemiology working at LSHTM since 1997. My overseas experience involves working on long-term malaria research projects in Tanzania and India, and I have also provided statistical assistance to malaria intervention trials in Ghana, Bolivia, China and Laos. Since 2007 I have been based overseas in Madrid, Spain.

Before joining LSHTM I completed my doctoral thesis in malaria epidemiology at the University of Oxford.
