Joseph is a Research Fellow and PhD candidate, who joined the the Institute for Global Health in October 2018.

Following a four-year period of clinical practice in critical-care and emergency nursing he pursued his Master’s degree in Global Health and Development at University College London (2016-17), receiving training in global health and development theory and policy, research methodology and developed a special interest in perinatal epidemiology and maternal health.

After gaining further research training working as a member of a clinical trial management team, supporting the management of randomised control trials in both the UK and East Africa, he returned to UCL to undertake his PhD. 

Research Summary

Joseph's thesis title is "“An individual-based mathematical model simulating maternal and perinatal health and healthcare provision in Malawi to estimate the impact of improved healthcare provision on morbidity, mortality and Disability Adjusted Life Years

His primary supervisor is Dr Tim Colbourn.

Joseph’s research forms part of the Research Councils UK funded project “Thanzi La Onse”(Health for All) which aims to improve population health and reduce health inequities in Malawi and Uganda through the development of research to inform resource allocation decision making in the region. 

He is part of a team of epidemiologists who are developing an ambitious individual-based “whole system, all disease” simulation model of Malawi and its health system. Joseph research entails the conceptualisation, parameterisation and construction of a model which simulates maternal and perinatal health, antenatal care, skilled birth attendance and postnatal care services in the region.

Whilst initially the model will reflect the current state of maternity care in the region it will be used to run a number of scenarios of improved implementation to quantify impact and cost effectiveness of reductions in mortality, morbidity and DALYs.

Teaching Summary
Joseph has taught across a number of modules delivered through the Institute for Global Health, at both undergraduate and masters level, including:

  • Health, poverty and development (GLBH0003)
  • Concepts and controversy's in global health (GLBH0018)
  • Health systems in a global context (GLBH0023)
  • Power and politics in global health (GLBH0020)

He acts as a personal tutor for a number of MSc students and was awarded Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy in 2020.
