Grace is currently completing a part-time MSc in Public Health with a focus in health economics and epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. At the same time, she is a Research Projects Manager at the School and coordinates and manages rapid response and development projects, contributes to research on vector-borne disease risk factors and outcomes, leads the monitoring, evaluation and learning activity for an innovative public health tool; the Global Vector Hub, and develops and writes proposals that support the implementation of tools and interventions in vector control.

Grace's early academic background lies in anthropology and she has recently completed a diploma in life sciences for subjects allied to medicine. In addition, she has held a variety of roles in programme delivery, grant management, impact research, education, and communications, working across international development NGOs that focus on issues such as climate change, off-grid energy access, and human rights. Prior to working in international development, Grace trained as a TEFL Language Instructor and worked in Ha Noi, Viet Nam and Madurai, India.

With a developing skill set in advanced statistical methods in epidemiology and health economics, a background in qualitative research methodologies and political and philosophical discourse, and keen interest and knowledge of the biomedical sciences, Grace offers a unique and comprehensive approach to her work in public health research.
