I am an infectious disease epidemiologist focusing primarily on the conduct of operational research.  My experience is further focused in humanitarian and resoruce limited settings, particularly in the Arab world and Africa. 

I've previously worked with the Johns Hopkins School of Public health, WHO, UNHCR, and Save the Children US and consulted for several other organizaitons.  I now work on a rpoject to estimate the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic in Sudan as well as co-directing the Sudan COVID-19 Research Group.
