Personal profile

Biography

I am the Director of Impact Assessment at the World Mosquito Program (WMP), within the Institute of Vector-Borne Disease at Monash University. WMP uses Wolbachia for the biocontrol of arboviruses including dengue, chikungunya and Zika that are transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. My work is focused on implementation science and epidemiological research to demonstrate the durable effectiveness and safety of WMP's Wolbachia method in our global field sites, and to support scaled global implementation of the technology to maximise the public health benefit to communities at risk of dengue and other Aedes-borne viruses.  I have worked in epidemiological research and public health practice for 15 years, including six years at the Oxford University Clinical Research Unit in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and two years at the (former) UK Health Protection Agency in London.
