I have a background in health policy with a special focus on the Middle East and North Africa region. In 2015 I worked for the Emergency Water Sanitation and Hygiene group in the occupied Palestinian territories, supporting their advocacy activities. After leaving this position, I undertook an MSc in Public Health at LSHTM. Since graduating, I have worked in Southern Madagascar running the evaluation of a rural water supply project. I joined LSHTM in my current role in July 2018.

Affiliations

Faculty of Infectious and Tropical Diseases
Department of Disease Control

Teaching

I am a tutor on the Control of Infectious Diseases programme and a facilitator on two MSc modules; Analysis and Design of Research Studies; and Designing Disease Control Programmes in Developing Countries.   

Research

My interests include WASH, NTDs and evaluation design. Most recently I have published research on the relationship between access to water and childhood morbidity in the occupied Palestinian territories. I am now working as the Clinical Trials Operations Coordinator on the DeWorm3 Trial, a five-year multi-country trial to determine the feasibility of interrupting the transmission of soil-transmitted helminthiasis (STH). The Trial is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and hosted at The Natural History Museum, partnering with LSHTM and the University of Washington, in addition to implementing institutions in Benin, India, and Malawi.
