  • Teaching Fellow, Evaluation and Policy
  • Head of COVID CIRCLE Initiative

I am a researcher in the Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R) secretariat. I am Head of the COVID-19 Research Coordination and Learning Initiative (COVID CIRCLE). This is a joint initiative between the UK Collaborative on Development Research (UKCDR) and GloPID-R established to coordinate funding efforts, connect networks of researchers, and collate learnings to inform future epidemic and pandemic responses with a focus on lower-resource settings.

I am a Teaching Fellow on the International Health and Tropical Medicine masters course- on global health policy and evaluation. 

I’m an infectious disease epidemiologist by training, undertaking my PhD and Post- Doctoral Research Associate work at Imperial College London on Neglected Tropical Diseases. I worked as a Programme Manager for the Schistosomiasis Control Initiative in Tanzania, before joining the Wellcome Trust where I worked for nine years on global health funding, policy and developed a new global health insight and analysis function. I worked as an independent global health policy research consultant for two years before being appointed to the Head of COVID CIRCLE role at UKCDR to lead their research and policy work for the COVID-19 pandemic.
