My career resides at the intersection of population health research and IT. In this regard, I use research as a tool in customising standards and tools for implementation of the widely recommended FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Re-usable) data management and stewardship principles in population health.

I am currently working across multiple projects among them the Malawi Epidemiology Intervention and Research Unit, the ALPHA network (http://alpha.lshtm.ac.uk) and the ANDLA(https://andla.org) network.
