Teaching

I lead on methods teaching for the Social Epidemiology module, where I deliver sessions on multivariate methods, mediation, and causality. I lecture on causality on the DL Advanced Statistical Methods in Epidemiology module. I also lead practical sessions for Basic Statistics for PHP & Statistics for EPH, where I have generated new content focussing on the R programming language. At the start of the year, I run the Intro to R sessions for MSc Epidemiology, RSHR, and DH students. Some of my teaching materials are available on my github

Research

My primary research interest is in the intersection between causal inference and social epidemiology. My work has specifically focussed on the impact of social protection policies on infectious disease, on which I have collaborated with a number of partners from international organisations such as the WHO, WFP, and UNICEF.

I presently work as a social epidemiologist with the Sustainable Development Goals: Health and Wellbeing Research Consortium, and formerly worked as a statistician on the DREAMS impact evaluation team. I also have an interest in research ethics, and am Deputy Chair of the MSc Ethics Committee.  I am also a member of LSHTM's Decolonising Global Health and Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion groups. Currently, I support the work of Medact to investigate social and structural determinants of COVID-19.
