Research

Currently working on the spatial epidemiology of lymphatic filariasis and its associated morbidity in Ethiopia. I am also involved in ongoing work implementing cluster-randomised prevalence surveys and mapping of neglected tropical diseases using a novel integrated approach in West Africa. I also work alongside my colleagues in the LASER group on a cluster-randomised trial (TUMIKIA) to assess different MDA distribution strategies targeting soil transmitted helminths.
