I have worked at LSHTM since 2011, first in the Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health, then in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy, mostly on evaluations of complex interventions with various levels of behavioural components, and now half-time with the Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases. I spent a year on secondment at the Education Endowment Foundation where I helped with the design of trials of interventions to improve academic attainment for children from less-well-off backgrounds in the UK.

Teaching

I co-founded and co-organise the Evaluation of Public Health Interventions module. I teach an introduction to quasi-experimental methods. I also teach on statistics and epidemiology courses and support tutees. 

Research

Thematically, I have mostly worked on improving access to HIV-services of female sex workers, which is the topic of my PhD. By some way my most read piece of work was a statistical replication study of a deworming trial, despite not knowing a lot about deworming. Nonetheless, the study led to collaborations with statisticians at the School and at UCL on methods for analysing stepped wedge trials. I am interested in learning how process and impact evaluations can be used together to make useful recommendations for policy in new environments, and I have done a little work on this with the Centre for Excellent for Development Impact and Learning (CEDIL), at the School. I am currently one of two Deputy Directors of the Centre for Evaluation, having been a Theme Leader for the Quantifying Impact theme since the Centre’s inception.
