I am an environmental health researcher with an interest in neglected tropical diseases and water, sanitation and hygiene. I graduated from LSHTM with an MSc in Public Health (Environment and Health Stream) in 2016 and following this, worked as a Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist at SEED Madagascar from 2017-2018, where I designed and coordinated the evaluation of a rural water supply intervention. I joined LSHTM in 2018 as the Clinical Trials Operations Coordinator for the DeWorm3 Project, a multi-country cluster randomised trial testing the feasibility of interrupting transmission of soil-transmitted helminthiasis in selected sites in Benin, Malawi and India. In October 2020 I undertook a new role within LSHTM as the Trial Coordinator for the SABABU project, a cluster randomised trial investigating the contribution of household flooring to diseases burden in two rural settings in Kenya.

I have a broad range of research interests that cover programme evaluation, neglected tropical diseases, environmental health in low income settings and more specifically water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). I am particularly interested in issues of sustainability of access to WASH and exploring the behavioral outcomes associated with environmental health interventions.
