With nearly two decades of of research, policy, and science communications experience, I deliver and support high-level strategic communication strategies, projects, execution and planning. I am particularly interested in creating stronger links and knowledge exchange between experts, policy and decision makers, and the public.

I was previously Head of Communications & Engagement at MRC Unit The Gambia at LSHTM, working to establish the MRCG at LSHTM as a leader in health research in West Africa and beyond.

I manage LSHTM's team of Research Communications Managers and Officers and Digital Content team, and previously managed our Internal Communications Officers and Sustainability Officer. I also oversee our work and student placements for science communication MSc students, secondary students, and more.

I co-produced and led on the award winning LSHTM Viral podcast, exploring the science behind global health.

Previously, I was Communications Manager at the UK Parliamentary Office for Science and Technology, responsible for bringing academics and Parliamentarians together on evidence-based policy. I was a Project Officer at the United Nations University - Institute for Water, Environment, and Health, working to positively influence and support informed global environmental science policy, and a Research Assistant and Hydrometric Lead Control at Environment and Climate Change Canada working in freshwater systems, monitoring, and ecotoxicology.

I have been a journal editor for the Water Quality Journal of Canada and The Solutions Journal, and have written for the UNCCD, GIZ, The Guardian, The New Humanitarian (formerly IRIN), LIDC and numerous other outlets.
