My main research focus is on the epidemiology and demographic impacts of HIV in generalised epidemics, predominately in Eastern and Southern Africa. I specialise in the analysis of large complex datasets.

I hold an undergraduate degree in physics from University College London and from LSHTM a Medical Demography MSc and a PhD on the demographic determinants of paediatric HIV.  Prior to coming to LSHTM in 2001, I worked at AHED (Association of Health and Environmental Development) in an Egyptian NGO based in Cairo.

Teaching

I am module organiser for the Analysing Survey and Population Data and also teach on the Demographic Methods and Epidemiology in practice modules. I run a short course: "Advanced Stata course: programming and techniques to make you life easier"

Research

I am currently working on projects with the ALPHA network.  I specialise in the analysis of longitudinal data especially from demographic surveillance. I am also working on the effects of HIV on fertility and HIV incidence in pregnancy and how this impacts on the models that estimate and project paediatric HIV.  Other research includes estimating and projecting child mortality in populations affected by generalised HIV epidemics, orphanhood, marriage and HIV, fertility indicators and the social determinants of health and mortality in older people in Eastern Africa.
