Prior to joining LSHTM I worked for three years as the Research Manager for WaterAid UK. In this role I managed multi-country research projects, including an evaluation of a sanitation behaviour change intervention in Nigeria. From 2008 - 2012 I was based in Cambodia, coordinating research activities and supporting policy development on issues including malaria prevention, migrant health and child health. I have also worked in Central and Eastern Europe on programmes aimed at improving health outcomes for Roma children, and have practised as a registered nurse in Australia.
I have an MSc in Public Health from Flinders University in Australia, and a BA in Nursing from the University of South Australia.
