I am a paediatrician doctor and Wellcome Trust clinical PhD fellow (administered by LSHTM) looking at malnutrition and its effect on the gut and the immune system in children. I am doing clinical research studies as sub-studies of the HOPE-SAM and TAME trials. I am based at Queen Mary, University of London, and I am working at Zvitambo Institute of Maternal and Child Health Research in Harare, Zimbabwe. I am interested in the body's response to infection, how it is affected by the gut and by malnutrition. I am aiming to subspecialise in paediatric infectious diseases.
I am conducting research in children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM).
My research project 'The role of enteropathy and systemic inflammation in SAM' and looks at children with SAM and how their outcomes are affected by the gut and the immune system. My project is a sub-study of the HOPE-SAM and TAME trials.
