I am currently a PhD student at the Infectious Disease Epidemiology Department at LSHTM. My main work involves evaluating the short and long-term impact of the current pneumococcal conjugate vaccine immunization programme in Kenya.

I also offer statistical support in the analysis of various health research studies at the KEMRI-Wellcome trust research programme in Kilifi, Kenya.
