Teaching

I am a Programme Director for the MSc in Public Health for Development and teach on the following modules: Epidemiology in Practice (data management component); Current Issues In Safe Motherhood & Perinatal Health; Research Design and Analysis; Design and Analysis of Epidemiological Studies.

Formerly, I was a training fellow with Ipact (University of Aberdeen) and ran international training courses in six countries in Africa and Asia in Monitoring and Evaluation of Maternal and Neonatal Health Programmes for programme managers in ministries of health at national level and in international NGOs.

Research

My research interests focus on programmatic components of the provision of maternal and neonatal health services.

Currently I work on the IDEAS programme (http://ideas.lshtm.ac.uk). I collaborate with the Gombe State Primary Health Care Development Agency to manage a series of workshops to enhance the use of data among projects supporting the Agency in their efforts to enhance maternal and newborn care. 

For five years I worked on IMMPACT, a research project that examines approaches to assessing the effectiveness and cost of maternal health programmes. The main focus of my work was the village-based midwife programme in Indonesia with a particular interest in the distribution of personnel and referral to hospital of women who suffer an obstetric emergency.
