I am a Project Manager within the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. I support the Vaccine Epidemiology Research Group, which is led by Professor Nick Grassly. I originally joined the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis in 2020 as an Administrative Assistant.

I am responsible for tracking milestones and deliverables, budgets and expenditure and providing support to partners for multiple multi-country research projects. 

Current research topics include: Rapid diagnostics for poliovirus surveillance; Epidemiology of polio eradication and endgame strategy; Environmental surveillance for Typhoid; Human infection challenge for vaccine development

Prior to joining Imperial, I supported global health workforce development projects in Asia, Africa and the Middle East and completed my MSc in Global Health and Social Justice at Kings College London.
