I teach on the Statistics for Epidemiology and Public Health (STEPH) and Advanced Statistical Methods in Epidemiology (ASME) MSc modules as well as the Advanced Course in Epidemiological Analysis (ACEA) which runs each September.


I am a statistician for the PopART trial based in South Africa and Zambia, which is investigating the impact of an HIV combination prevention intervention, including universal testing and treatment, on HIV incidence.

I also work as the statistician within the International Centre for Eye Health at LSHTM.
