A PhD scholar in infection and global health, with particular focus on infant health and health interventions in Africa. I initially had a strong focus on HIV treatment, research as well as training and I spent 10 years working with HIV patients in Uganda. My current research is focused on understanding the biomedical and economic burden of infant respiratory disease in Malawi and I am also involved in a neonatal RCT looking to evaluate the effect of KMC initiated before stabilisation on mortality amongst neonates ≤2000g in Uganda. I am interested in exploring of the introduction of new respiratory vaccines to national programmes in LMIC for the prevention of neonatal and infant respiratory disease. My work is predominantly clinical, integrating aspects of epidemiology, molecular biology, social science and immunology.
