I studied medicine at the University of Birmingham from 2009-2015 and during my intercalated degree in International Health, I visited Guinea-Bissau to conduct a trachoma prevalence survey and a qualitative study of community health beliefs. After completing clinical foundation training in Liverpool, which included editing a major update of regional tropical medicine guidelines and laboratory work on carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae, I undertook the MSc Topical Medicine and International Health at LSHTM. I returned to Guinea-Bissau and conducted a malaria prevalence and bed net survey. After a year of clinical practice in New Zealand, I returned to LSHTM to take up my current post as trial manager of the MATAMAL clinical trial.

Research

I am currently a clinical research fellow and the trial manager for MATAMAL, a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial taking place on the Bijagos Archipelago, Guinea-Bissau. The study aims to determine the impact of mass drug administration of ivermectin/placebo and dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine on seasonal malaria transmission. My PhD research is nested within this trial, and will examine how serological techniques can be used to monitor changes in malaria transmission.
