Mr Hugo Legge
BA (Hons) MSc
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 in 2016. Following this I 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, where we will be investigating the relationship between household flooring and enteric and parasitic infections in three distinct settings in Kenya.
I am a tutor on the Control of Infectious Diseases MSc programme and a facilitator on two MSc modules; Analysis and Design of Research Studies; and Designing Disease Control Programmes in Developing Countries.
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.
