About me

  • Infectious Diseases Epidemiologist
    I'm an Infectious Diseases Epidemiologist, with a focus on paediatric
    pneumonia diagnosis, treatment and management in sub-Saharan Africa. I've
    worked in Malawi since 2012 on various research projects, including vaccine
    effectiveness studies, piloting and re-designing novel diagnostic
    techonologies, and developing predictive algorithms to improve treatment
    decision making. I am particularly interested in clinical research conducted
    at the community level.

  • I am currently working on emergency care for children within primary
    healthcare settings in Malawi, to improve the identification of severely sick
    children, and understanding the referral pathways. I also co-lead a project
    in Nigeria with the aim of reducing pneumonia-specific mortality in children
    in Lagos and Jigawa states.
