Medical Epidemiologist, Infectious Diseases Data Observatory

I am an infectious disease physician by training and a clinical epidemiologist based at the Infectious Diseases Data Observatory (IDDO).

Over the past few years, I have dedicated my work to studying the epidemiology of malaria in pregnancy, focusing particularly on the use of antimalarials during pregnancy. My doctoral project (2015-2019, St Edmund Hall) aimed to summarize the available evidence to optimize the clinical care of pregnant women with malaria and improve the quality of research methodology for the future. Since then, I have closely collaborated with researchers at the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit (SMRU, Mae Sot, Thailand) and the WorldWide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN, Oxford).

My research interests extend broadly to the epidemiology of clinical infectious diseases, with a particular focus on malaria and other tropical infectious diseases, as well as nosocomial bacterial infections and antimicrobial resistance (AMR).
