I trained in veterinary medicine in Australia and worked in clinical practice for the Royal Veterinary College, London, before completing a DPhil in cancer epidemiology at the University of Oxford. Since 2012 I have worked as an epidemiologist with the Malawi Epidemiology and Intervention Research Unit (MEIRU), based predominately in northern rural Malawi.
