I trained in paediatrics, and subsequently epidemiology and public health, with a focus on infectious diseases in maternal, child and newborn health.

I have a particular interest in perinatal infection, and my Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship based at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme, concerned the clinical and molecular epidemiology of Group B Streptococcus in coastal Kenya and its association with stillbirth and neonatal disease.

I am now pursing my interests as a Wellcome Trust Career Development Fellow, working on the aetiology of maternal infection and their association with stillbirth in Ethiopia (Haramaya University) and Kenya (KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme). My work in Ethiopia is based at a new Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance site in Harar (www.champshealth.org) where LSHTM is developing a collaborative programme of research with Haramaya University.
