I have been working in the Environmental Health Group at LSHTM since 2011. Prior to joining LSHTM I worked for two years as an epidemiologist at the Dutch National Institute for Public Health (RIVM) as a Fellow on the European Programme for Intervention Epidemiology Training (EPIET). As an EPIET Fellow I was involved in research projects, surveillance activities and outbreak investigations. I worked on a variety of vaccine-preventable diseases, food-borne illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases and hospital-acquired infections. During this Fellowship I also consulted for the World Health Organisation on polio vaccination in Northern Nigeria. Prior to the Netherlands, I was based in Zambia for nearly two years where I coordinated the research activities at study sites in Ndola and Kitwe for an HIV research group from Emory University. I have a BSc First Class Honours degree in Natural Sciences from the University of Birmingham (2005) and an MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases from LSHTM (2006). I recently completed my PhD  on the design and evaluation of a multiple behaviour change intervention to control childhood diarrhoea in Zambia.

Teaching

Most of my face-to-face teaching at LSHTM takes place in Term 2 on the following in-house MSc modules:

  • Tropical Environmental Health (3434)
  • Applied Communicable Disease Control (1454)

I am also a tutor on two Distance Learning modules:

  • Epidemiology of Communicable Diseases in Developing Countries (IDM301)
  • Water and Sanitation (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

The main focus of my research (and the topic of my recently-completed PhD) involves the design and evaluation of behaviour change interventions to control diarrhoea and trachoma. I am particularly interested in the measurement of behavioural outcomes of trials and in process evaluation.
