I have a Bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences from Oxford University, and an MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases from LSHTM.

Before joining the School as a Research Assistant in 2017, I worked for two years in infectious disease surveillance and epidemiology at Public Health England.

I have experience of working with NTD control programmes in Ghana and Myanmar.

Teaching

I help to design and deliver training workshops in QGIS

Research

I am currently working with the AIM Initiative, which supports national NTD control programmes to strengthen and integrate their surveillance activities. Through this work, I hope to help increase the value and use of routine data sources for research purposes and for guiding integrated NTD control and case management activities.

Part of my role involves capacity strengthening through the delivery of training for public health teams in NTD-endemic countries.

I am also interested in the role of primary healthcare in the surveillance and case management of NTDs, and the impact of health service accessibility on disease detection and morbidity outcomes.
