My main research interest is in malaria epidemiology. Before re-joining the School in 2007, I worked for the Malaria Research Programme of the South African Medical Research Council. I was president of the South African Statistical Association in 2006/7.

I am a technical advisor for the Southern African Development Community's (SADC) Elimination Eight inititiative, which support regional approaches for malaria elimination in eight countries in Southern African.

Malaria Centre

Teaching

I teach on the Intensive Course in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics, which I co-organised before relocating part time to Namibia and South Africa

Research

My research focus is the evaluation of comprehensive malaria control interventions; cluster randomised trials evaluating vector control tools; the potential added benefit of combining malaria vector control interventions; the impact of insecticide resistance on the effectiveness of insecticide-based malaria vector control tools; the epidemiology of malaria elimination. I have been the senior epidemiologist of the Bioko Island Malaria Control Project since its inception in 2003.
