Dr Giorgia Gon
BA, MSc, PhD
I am an Epidemiologist with degrees in human sciences and epidemiology. I started working for LSHTM in 2013 within the Merck for Mothers project and then joined the Soapbox Collaborative research team. Prior to this I have worked with Merlin in London and Juba, South Sudan, and as a Consultant for the OECD in the UK. I was also a Young Professional Intern at the HIV-AIDS Unit for UNODC in Jakarta, Indonesia. I hold a BA in Human Sciences from the University of Oxford and an MSc and PhD in Epidemiology at LSHTM.
I teach on in-house courses in statistics, epidemiology and public health - Statistics for Epidemiology and Population Health (STEPH), Statistical Methods for Epidemiology (SME), and Extended Epidemiology.
My current area of focus is on infection prevention and control in maternity units in low and middle-income countries. Behavioural sciences and intervention design are cross-cutting areas of interest.
