I am an interdisciplinary social scientist with a development studies background and a keen interest in the bi-directional relationship between health and poverty (and other social and structural drivers of morbidity) from a global health perspective.  I hold an MSc in Poverty Reduction and Development Management from the International Development Department of the University of Birmingham as well as an MSc in Demography and Health from LSHTM.  My PHD research at LSHTM examined the socioeconomic impact of highly active antiretroviral therapy on household livelihoods in Uganda.

Before joining LSHTM, I worked as a Research Officer at the Overseas Development Institute in London.  Currently I work with the Gender Violence and Health Centre (GVHC) which is part of the Social and Mathematical Epidemiology Group (SaME) in the Department of Global Health and Development (GHD).

Currently I am leading formative research in Uganda into adolescent vulnerability to transactional sex and sexual exploitation as part of the Learning Initiative on Norms Exploitation and Abuse (LINEA).  I also led the qualitative evaluation of SASA! ─ a community-based intervention that seeks to prevent violence against women and reduce HIV risk in Kampala Uganda, and the Good Schools Toolkit – a school based intervention designed to reduce violence against children in schools and improve learning outcomes. 

More broadly, my research interests centre on HIV/AIDS, livelihoods and social and structural determinants of health.  I am particularly motivated by action-oriented research to inform interventions and positive change.
