Scientific Manager- GloPID-R

  • Course Advisor- International Health and Tropical Medicine MSc
  • Head of COVID CIRCLE Initiative

I lead the Scientific Secretariat for the Global Research Collaboration for Infectious Disease Preparedness (GloPID-R) . I'm also the research lead for 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 Course Advisor for the International Health and Tropical Medicine masters course- focussing on global health policy and evaluation and leadership. 

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. I've been involved in the IHTM Masters course for the past four years and joined GloPID-R in 2021.
