I am an epidemiologist in the Department of Population Health. I completed my BA at the University of Massachusetts where I studied Sociology and Psychology and MSc and PhD in Epidemiology at LSHTM. I joined LSHTM as a staff member in March 2013.
I teach on the Basic Epidemiology and Study Design MSc modules and on the Introductory Course in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics and Adolescent Health in Low and Middle Income Countries short courses. I co-organise the Family Planning Programmes module and am a personal tutor on the Reproductive and Sexual Health Research MSc.
My research interests include developing and evaluating interventions to improve young people's sexual and reproductive health.
