Teaching

I am presently the module facilitator across the statistical modules in EPH. 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 Statistics for EPH, where I have generated new content focussing on the R programming language. Some of my teaching materials are available on my github. 

Research

My primary research interest is in the intersection of causal inference and social epidemiology. My applied work has specifically focussed on measuring the impact of complex social exposures on a number of public health areas including HIV and tuberculosis. The role of social protection in TB control is a particular area of applied interest, and working closely with Delia Boccia, I have collaborated on this topic with a number of partners from international organisations such as the WHO, WFP, and UNICEF.

At the School, I presently work as a social epidemiologist with Amiya Bhatia and Karen Devries in the Child Protection Research Group, primarily on measurement of violence in the CoVAC cohort study.
