My area of focus is vaccine research. I completed an MRC(UK)-funded PhD in 2016 that evaluated best practices in human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine introduction in low and middle-income countries. Whilst based at the Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit in Tanzania for 2014 and 2015, I also aided the initial set-up of the EBOVAC1 Ebola vaccine Phase 1 trial. As a post-doc, I have worked as the London-based coordinator of the EBOVAC1 portfolio of projects including two large phase 2b vaccine trials in Sierra Leone with 2 nested observational studies.
