Kate is a biologist who has had an interest in infectious disease since specialising in microbiology and virology during her undergraduate degree. She gained experience in research whilst working for a charity in maternal and child health centres in Somaliland and during an internship with FIND in Geneva. After a short stint in the public health directorate of NHS Lambeth, she completed the Msc in Epidemiology at LSHTM in 2013.

Kate completed a PhD evaluating the implementation of HPV vaccination in East Africa and other low and middle income countries, which included field work in Tanzania in 2014-15. Whilst based at the Mwanza Intervention Trials Unit in Tanzania she aided initial set-up of the EBOVAC1 Ebola vaccine Phase 1 trial and now works as a coordinator of the EBOVAC1 projects in London.
