Senior Advisor to the Director
As the Senior Advisor to the Director I work to initiate and support the Director's various internal and external engagements and research outputs. I also coordinate and manage the evolving work plan, strategy and priorities of the Global Burden of Disease Independent Advisory Committee (IAC). The GBD IAC, chaired by Peter Piot, is an independent committee of experts who provide strategic guidance and feedback on the Global Burden of Disease methodology and results.
Prior to joining LSHTM, I conducted research and managed nutrition policy programs at the Center on Globalization and Sustainable Development at the Earth Institute of Columbia University in New York. I worked on food security projects and nutrition policy advisory work in Tanzania, Haiti, Timor-Leste and Myanmar.
I previously spent four years in the Press and Communications team at the Delegation of the European Union to the United Nations in New York and has also worked in EU’s Delegation to the USA in Washington DC and in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. I hold a BA from the University of Leeds, an MSc from the London School of Economics (LSE) and an MPA from Columbia University, New York.
