I am a Statistics and Demography graduate currently providing data documentation support within ALPHA (http://alpha.lshtm.ac.uk) and ANDLA(https://andla.org) networks. My career resides at the intersection of public health and IT. I aim to understand and provide solutions to some of the issues currently facing public health practitioners relating to data management namely the need to preserve their data, to provide open-access and to get sufficient credit for producing and sharing those data.
