I graduated from BSc Biology with a Year in Europe from Imperial College London in 2006. Following my interest in infectious diseases and development, I completed the MSc Control of Infectious Diseases at LSHTM in 2007. I then joined the Environmental Health Group as a part-time Research Assistant and part-time research degree student.

In 2012 I completed my PhD, which explored the differences between reported and actual household water treatment (HWT) practices among self-reported practitioners in middle- and low-income countries.  

I am currently working on several evaluations of environmental interventions in India and Rwanda, including the Household Air Pollution Intervention Network (HAPIN) Trial, an international multi-center study aimed at assessing the impact of a liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) cooking stove and fuel intervention on health. HAPIN Trial centers are located in four countries: Guatemala, India, Peru and Rwanda.

Teaching

I am co-organiser of the in-house module Tropical Environmental Health. I also teach on the face-to-face modules Analysis and Design of Research Studies and Environmental Health Policies, and on the distance-learning module Water, Hygiene & Sanitation. 

Research

I am interested in the design and implementation of impact evaluation studies, as well as in monitoring and understanding compliance of environmental health interventions.

Current research includes the HAPIN trial to assess the health impact of LPG across the lifespan, and the evaluations of the Tubeho Neza, a countrywide campaign promoting advance water filters and improved cookstoves in rural Rwanda, and a novel advance water filter designed to reduce arsenic in drinking water in West Bengal, India.
