I am a trained epidemiologist with specific interests and experience in infectious disease surveillance and control and health systems strengthening.  I have worked on evaluation and operational improvement of surveillance systems for the last 10 years. I have worked on general surveillance strategies such as Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response (IDSR) in the WHO-AFRO region as well as disease specific surveillance systems, namely Vaccine Preventable Diseases, Acute Flaccid Paralysis (Poliomyelitis), Meningococcal Meningitis and Ebola Virus Disease.   I continue to work on projects to improve surveillance and health information systems. I also work extensively on global governance and policy analyses to translate research into policy in low and middle income countries.
