I currently work on the MENISCUS trial to evaluate the impact of a school-based menstrual health intervention in Uganda. Prior to joining LSHTM, I was a Research Manager at Development Media International where I developed and evaluated mass media behaviour change campaigns for reproductive health and child health.

I obtained my MSc in Epidemiology from LSHTM, with a focus on adolescent health and evaluation. I also hold a BA in Human Biology with interdisciplinary honors from Stanford University.
