I am a Principal Clinical Academic Fellow at Imperial College London. After qualifying in Medicine from Cambridge University in 2002, I worked for several years rotating through clinical specialties including general medicine, paediatric surgery, emergency medicine, anaesthetics and clinical microbiology. Subsequently, I completed the Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene at Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and obtained my PhD in Infectious Disease Epidemiology from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2011.
I have an interest in public health education and training. I am currently the Clinical Academic Lead for the Global Master in Public Health, a fully online degree programme offered by the School of Public Health. My research interests include the evaluation of child and adolescent public health programmes.
Public Health training in London
Before joining Imperial, I completed my public health specialist training and have worked as a Consultant in Public Health Medicine for Local Government, the NHS and Public Health England.
