With a background in public health research and global infectious disease epidemiology, I am passionate about contributing to sustainable knowledge translation. My PhD research focused on paediatric home-based treatment of HIV and Tuberculous meningitis in South Africa. After ten years in South Africa, I relocated to the UK in 2018 to join the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis.
