BVSc (Hons) MANZCVS FHEA DPhil
I trained in veterinary medicine in Australia and worked in clinical practice for the Royal Veterinary College, London, before completing a DPhil in cancer epidemiology at the University of Oxford.
I am a co-organiser for the 'Practical Epidemiology' distance learning module (EPM103) and also contribute to teaching on 'Fundamentals of Epidemiology' (EPM101) and 'Study Design: writing a grant application' (EPM201).
My research is focused on the epidemiology of non-communicable diseases in low-income, sub-Saharan Africa. In 2015, with Wellcome Trust clinical post-doctoral funding, I established community-level stroke surveillance in rural Malawi to quantify the population burden of incident stroke and to investigate important modifiable risk factors.
I collaborate with investigators from the ALPHA network of longitudinal population HIV studies in sub-Saharan Africa and I am a co-investigator on the Africa Non-communicable Diseases Longitudinal Data Alliance (ANDLA).
