Dr Nichola Naylor
BeconSc MSc PhD
I joined LSHTM as a Research Fellow in August 2018 to work within a collaboration between LSHTM and the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) called ‘Agriculture for Nutrition and Health (A4NH)’, funded by the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research. My research focuses on evaluating the potential impact of interventions to reduce antimicrobial use in livestock on human antimicrobial resistance and drug-resistant infections, with a focus on low and middle income settings.
I currently hold honorary positions at Public Health England and Imperial College London. I am also currently undertaking work with the World Health Organisation.
Previously (2015 - 2018) I worked as a Research Assistant at the NIHR funded Health Protection Research Unit on Healthcare Associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance at Imperial College London and Public Health England. During this time I also conducted my PhD, awarded June 2019. My research at Imperial College focused on estimating the burden of antibiotic resistant and antibiotic susceptible Escherichia coli infections. Methods practiced during this time include systematic reviews, statistical data analysis on national datasets and health economic costing models.
I was awarded a BeconSc in Economics from the University of Manchester in 2012, and an MSc in International Health Policy (Health Economics) from the London School of Economics and Political Science following this.
