Her PhD research addressed how best to control morbidity attributable to intestinal parasitic helminths afflicting humans. In particular, she focused onSchistosoma mansoniand hookworm infections in Mayuge District, Uganda. Her work combines field techniques from the medical sciences with quantitative and computational approaches from the physical and social sciences. She has developed and applied complex network methodologies for increasing coverage of deworming medicines in mass treatment campaigns. In 2016, she received an Isaac Newton Trust Fellowship. Currently, she is a Junior Research Fellow in medical sciences in King’s College, Cambridge and at the WT-CCGHR.
