I joined the Environmental Health Group at LSHTM in 2011. Prior to joining LSHTM, I worked as an epidemiologist at the Dutch National Institute for Public Health (RIVM) where I completed the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET). Before that, I was based on the Copperbelt in Zambia where I managed Emory University HIV research projects.

Teaching

Most of my face-to-face teaching at LSHTM takes place in Term 2 on the following in-house MSc modules: WASH and Health; Applied Communicable Disease Control and Evaluation of Public Health Interventions. I also give lectures on the Diploma in Tropical Nursing and the Diploma in Tropical Medicine courses.

I am a Module Organiser for the Water and Sanitation Module IDM210.

I am a Personal Tutor and Supervisor of summer projects on the MSc courses Control of Infectious Diseases and Public Health for Development.

Research

My research focuses on the study and measurement of hygiene behaviour and the development and evaluation of behaviour change interventions. I have conducted formative research and been involved in several trials in Asia (India, Indonesia, Nepal) and Africa (Zambia, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana). My PhD research was conducted in Lusaka, Zambia and involved the design and evaluation (outcomes and process) of a multiple behaviour change intervention to control childhood diarrhoea through exclusive breastfeeding, handwashing and use of oral rehydration salts. I am curently working on Stronger-SAFE, a research project designed to improve strategies for trachoma elimination in Ethiopia. I am leading the WASH elements of this project. https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/research/centres-projects-groups/stronger-safe.
