I am a social epidemiologist with interest in intervention research on violence prevention, HIV prevention and treatment, and adolescent sexual and reproductive health. Previous focus includes field epidemiology, health information systems and operational research within humanitarian medical organisations.
Current work includes violence prevention research in Uganda, Cote d'ivoire, Zanzibar and South Africa and I am a member of the child protection research group: https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/child-protection-research-group
I am the study manager for the Contexts of Violence in Adolescence Cohort study (CoVAC): a mixed-methods cohort study in Uganda, with 3 waves of epidemiological data collection, 4 waves of qualitative data collection, and an integrated intervention development component. This study aims to further understanding on how family, peer, school and community contexts affect children’s experience of violence in adolescence and early adulthood.
