Dr Kerryn Moore
BSc MSc PhD
I have a PhD in Epidemiology from The University of Melbourne, Australia.
My PhD examined the influence of the timing of malaria detection and treatment in pregnancy on birth outcomes, using data from the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit on the Thai-Myanmar border. My results influenced WHO recommendations on the treatment of malaria in pregnancy in first trimester, and interventions for malaria in pregnancy in Asia.
After completing my PhD, I worked in Laos on a study investigating the impact of the recently introduced 13 valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine.
In 2019 I was awarded a four-year fellowship from the Australian Government National Health and Medical Research Council, which I am undertaking at LSHTM with Paul Milligan.
I am currently a Statistical Consultant to the WHO for the evaluation component of the Malaria Vaccine (RTS,S) Implementation Programme, which is taking place in Ghana, Malawi, and Kenya. I am also investigating the impact of ACCESS-SMC - a UNITAID funded project supporting National Malaria Control Programs in the Sahel to scale-up the coverage of Seasonal Malaria Chemoprevention - on child mortality rates.
