I am a research fellow in the Department of Disease Control in the Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases. I completed my MSc in Public Health Nutrition at the School in 2011. Prior to that, I obtained my MPH in International Health from the Boston University School of Public Health. I am a member of the Research and Evaluation Applied to Complex Interventions in Health (REACH) team at LSHTM. I am an Associate Public Health Nutritionist with the Association for Nutrition in the UK.

Teaching

I am a member of teaching staff for the MSc in Nutrition for Global Health and co-organize the Fundamental Public Health Nutrition module.

Research

I am the research lead on a Realist Evaluation of a programme of integrated immunizations and family planning services in Benin, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, and Uganda. This evaluation is funded by the Pfizer Foundation. Prior to this role, I was a statistical epidemiologist on an ancillary study to the HPTN071 (PopART) trial, looking at the role of stigma among health care workers on delivery and uptake of a universal test and treat (UTT) strategy for HIV in Zambia and South Africa. I have held consultancies with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie).

My personal research interests are the role of nutrition and diet on health outcomes and health behaviour of immigrant and migrant populations, and populations experiencing rapid urbanzation.
