at the International Centre for Eye Health
I am a Project Coordinator in the International Centre for Eye Health within the Disability & Eye Health Group. I coordinate two projects:
- Stronger-SAFE: Eliminating Trachoma, funded by the Wellcome Trust
- Severe Corneal Infections: Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment: Senior Research Fellowship in Clinical Science, funded by Wellcome Trust
I manage the budgets, coordination, communication, and reporting for these programmes. I line-manage one person and I provide PA support to Professor Matthew Burton.
I also project coordinated the Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium, 2014-2019, funded by The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust.
I hold a Diplôme d’Etudes en Langue Française from the Université d'Angers, France, and a HND in Business Enterprise from the Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland. From 2008 to 2011 I worked with Sightrisk Ltd., a start-up company based in Waterford, Ireland, which provides online risk assessment tools for age-related macular degeneration (AMD). From 2011 to 2014 I worked as Research Assistant at the Macular Pigment Research Group, Waterford Institute of Technology. I started working with LSHTM in September 2014.
I am a trained Mental Health First Aider (links for internal LSHTM only).
