Infectious Diseases Epidemiologist

About me

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. 

Research description

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.
