I joined LSHTM in 2018 as a Research Fellow in epidemiology and medical statistics. I work within the MRC International Statistics and Epidemiology Group (ISEG) and for the International Centre for Eye Health. My research focuses on the methodological design and analysis of randomised controlled trials and poulation-based surveys in low- and middle-income countries.

I completed an MPH in Epidemiology at Emory University and an Hon BSc in Physiology at University of Toronto.   


Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health
Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology


I teach on MSc Epidemiology and Statistics modules including:

  • Basic Epidemiology
  • Statistics for Epidemiology and Public Health
  • Design and Analysis of Epidemiological Studies


My current research focuses on developing adaptive trial methodology to optimize the coverage of eye care services with PEEK Vision. I also support the statistical analysis of the Gambia National Eye Health Survey and prevalence studies of infectious diseases including brucellosis and avian influenza.

Prior to joining LSHTM I have worked in clinical research areas including STDs, primary care services, and emergency medicine in South Korea and in Canada.
