15-17 Tavistock Place
Prior to joining LSHTM I worked on a number of HIV and sexual health projects primarily in developing countries (Belize, Sierra Leone, Namibia) for NGOs.
I currently teach on the in-house Principles of Social Research (PSR) and Population Studies (migration lecture). I tutor on MSc Public Health and MSc Reproductive & Sexual Health Research (RSHR). I supervise MSc students and sit on the MSc RSHR Course Committee.
Previously, I was Co-Module Organiser for PSR for a number of years and also taught on Research Design & Analysis.
I am Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
I am a mixed-methods social science researcher. My research interests are sexual health, HIV, interpersonal violence and migration, including human trafficking and forced labour. I am also particularly interested in work around research ethics and methods.
I am currently working on a five-year DfID funded evaluation of the ILO Work in Freedom programme, an intervention aimed at reducing vulnerability to labour trafficking in India, Nepal and Bangladesh. I have been leading the Nepal mixed-methods study since 2013.
Some of my previous work include the Integra initiative, an evaluation on different models for delivering integrated HIV and sexual and reproductive health services in Kenya, Swaziland and Malawi; Camfed Seed Money Scheme evaluation in Zimbabwe and Tanzania; and the Global Burden of Diseases on interpersonal violence.
