I am a tutor on the Distance Learning Research Design Managment and Analysis module 

Research

My previous roles have included working as a research assistant on the Pacific Trachoma Initiative study as well as the LSHTM laboratory coordinator for the multi-site FIEBRE study, aimed at evaluating causes of fever in five countries in Asia and Africa.

I am now study coordinator for the LAMP4yaws study, an EDCTP funded project primarily aimed at evaluating a Loop-mediated isothermal amplification test for Treponema pallidum and Haemophilus ducreyi in Ghana, Cote D'Ivoire and Cameroon. Alongside this, I am working towards completing a PhD which is centred on yaws diagnostics.
