My background is in research, policy, and digital health focused on child health, pneumonia, and malaria, where I have supported projects in sub-Saharan Africa and Southeast Asia. I have a Masters in Public Health from LSHTM and an Honours degree in Infectious Diseases from the University of Edinburgh. After graduating from LSHTM in 2012, I was accepted on to the graduate scheme at DFID working on health policy before moving into the NGO sector. Within the NGO sector, I worked in the research team at Malaria Consortium for five years before joining LSHTM as a Research Fellow.

Teaching

I am a tutor on the "Malaria: from Science to Policy and Practice" module.

Research

Currently, I am working on a longitudinal study in two states in Nigeria, evaluating the theory-of-change for the SuNMaP2 project. SuNMaP2 is a Malaria Consortium led project, funded by FCDO, that aims to reduce Nigeria’s malaria burden through more efficient and effective use of available resources. The programme will strengthen the Government of Nigeria’s malaria control programme to ensure long-term sustainability. Within the mixed-method evaluation of SuNMaP2's theory-of-change, I am focusing on the quantitative aspects, using continuous survey, with the aim of updating state-level decision-makers every three months with ongoing data on malaria-service interventions and behaviour-change factors.
