Christinah is an Assistant Professor of Infectious Disease Modelling in the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases and TB Group. Her current research is on  estimating the potental health impact of Tuberculosis vaccines in settings with high TB/HIV burden, by using mathematical modelling. The outputs from the analyses will then be used to inform and guide public health policy in those settings.
