I completed my PhD at UCL GOS Institute of Child Health on the epidemiology of HIV among childbearing women in Europe, working on the European Collaborative Study and with a particular focus on the epidemic in Ukraine. My doctoral work identified groups of women living with HIV in Europe at heightened risk of vertical transmission and/or poor maternal outcomes. 

Research Summary

I am interested in infections as they impact on maternal and child health, with a particular focus on HIV, viral hepatitis, and zika virus and other arboviruses. I am currently leading a study of young people living with HIV in Ukraine funded by the International AIDS Society‚Äôs CIPHER initiative, in partnership with Dr Galyna Kiseleva and the PENTA-funded Ukraine Paediatric HIV Cohort Study. I contribute to a range of other projects within the European Pregnancy and Paediatric HIV Cohort Collaboration (EPPICC) and the UK and Ireland's National Study on HIV in Pregnancy and Childhood.

I coordinate an audit of the management of pregnant women with hepatitis B across England funded by the NHS Infectious Diseases in Pregnancy Screening Programme; results are informing optimisation of strategies to prevent vertically-acquired hepatitis B among babies born in the UK. I also work as a member of the ZIKAction Horizon2020 consortium (http://zikaction.org/) on studies of Zika and other arboviruses in South America and the Caribbean in pregnant women and children.

Teaching Summary

I co-lead the 'Epidemiology for Child Health' module and teach on the 'Immunisation and Communicable Diseases' module of the MSc in Paediatrics and Child Health. In July 2018, I was part of faculty for a residential PENTA/UNICEF Tr@inforPedHIV course in Kyrgyzstan, lecturing on the epidemology of HIV in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, and global epidemiology of hepatitis B and C.
