Lucy is an infectious disease epidemiologist interested in the control of malaria and other vector-borne diseases. She is funded by an MRC Skills Development Fellowship to investigate the role of housing improvements in reducing malaria transmission in Africa.

From 2016 to 2018, Lucy was based with the Malaria Atlas Project, Oxford Big Data Institute, University of Oxford. She has a PhD (2016) and MSc (2010, Distinction) from LSHTM. Her doctorate explored the relationship between agriculture, development and malaria in Uganda.

Lucy is chair of the Roll Back Malaria Partnership’s Housing and Malaria group (https://endmalaria.org/housing-and-malaria) and co-director of the BOVA network (Building Out Vector-Borne Disease in sub-Saharan Africa https://www.bovanetwork.org/).
