I am a clinician with a masters of public health (with distinction) from the University of Glasgow, UK. I have more than 6 years of clinical and public health experience in public health implementation in the field of HIV and neglected tropical diseases. I have advanced training in diagnostics policy and regulation through the advanced course in diagnostics (of which I am an organizer and a faculty). I also support and collaborate with the African Centres for Disease Control in guiding the future implementation of their emergency preparedness strategy and antimicrobial resistance surveillance network. Currently, I work under flagship 1 of the I-sense project in which we develop strategies to streamline the regulatory approval for diagnostics in the UK and for developing countries. I have more than 15 publications that span through clinical, public health and diagnostic policy domains. I look forward to a career in diagnostics and disease intelligence that would revolutionize the practice of public health in both developing and developed settings.
