After completing the MSc. epidemiology at LSHTM in 2007 I worked for the UK Health Protection Agency on national influenza surveillance, including during the 2009 H1N1 pandemic.  I then worked as a field epidemiologist on infectious disease outbreaks in Nigeria, Malawi and South Sudan for Médecins Sans Frontières.  I joined the school in 2013, working for the ALPHA network of longitudinal population HIV studies in sub-Saharan Africa while based in London, before moving out to the Karonga Health and Demographic Surveillance Site in northern Malawi in 2014. I work as the data scientist and have been involved in many different epidemiological and demographic analyses, qualitative data collection and analysis and field data collection techniqes, including electronic data capture. I continue to be involved with the ALPHA network, and also the Africa Non-communicable Diseases Longitudinal Data Alliance (ANDLA).

I am a tutor on the 'Practical Epidemiology' distance learning module (EPM103).

Research

I am working to make our complex, longitudinal data resource more accessible to enable more in-depth demographic and epidemiological analyses.  I am doing my PhD using these data to examine the effects of family and household structure during childhood and adolescence on mortality, puberty and reproductive health outcomes.
