I have been working at LSHTM since 2014, funded by a Medical Research Council Population Scientist Fellowship. My main area of research is in the field of digital health interventions to support sexual and reproductive health.
I completed my PhD titled 'Increasing contraception use with mobile phone-based interventions' at LSHTM in 2017 which included a systemic review of mHealth interventions for contraception and the MObile Technology for Improved Family Planning (MOTIF) trial in partnership with Marie Stopes International in Cambodia.
Previously I completed the Public Health in Developing Countries MSc at LSHTM in 2011 as part of a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) In-Practice Fellowship based at Imperial College London during 2010-12.
I work as a primary care medical doctor (GP) in London and have worked on an NHS project with Maddox Jolie-Pitt foundation in Cambodia and with Medecins Sans Frontieres in Uganda.
I co-organise the Family Planning programmes module (2401) and tutor on MSc Public Health for Development.
Interventions delivered by mobile phone (mHealth); sexual and reproductive health; primary care; health partnerships.
