I currently work at LSHTM as a Research Fellow in the Environmental Health Group which is the focus of the School's work on water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and health and currently includes approximately 30 researchers and support staff working on range of different areas of research.

I am a part-time PhD student as well as a Research Fellow at LSHTM. My PhD research is focussed on the epidemiology of WASH related diseases and the evaluation of WASH in disease outbreaks in humanitarian crises, collaborating with a range of implementing organisations and multilateral agencies including Médecins Sans Frontières, WHO and UNICEF. 

Prior to joining LSHTM as a researcher, I have worked for multiple non-governmental organisations (NGOs) coordinating WASH, nutrition and HIV/AIDS programmes in Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia.
