Since I joined the Kirby Institute, UNSW in April 2018 I have expanded my research program to include additional NTDs and countries. I currently lead the NTD research group, managing a team of 2 post-docs, 1 research assistant, 2 senior project officers, 2 PhD students and 1 MSc student.

Recently, I have been awarded a NHMRC Partnership grant ($1.5M,2021-26), on control of NTDs in the Pacific. I am a chief investigator (CI) in a NHMRC funded Centre of Research Excellence (CRE) for the control and elimination of NTDs ($2.5M AUD, 2018-23), also a CI in a CTCS NHMRC grant on the impact of MDA on STIs in Fiji ($2.1M, 22-27) and I have been awarded an Investigator grant L1 ($2.8M, 23-28).  

Recent research projects:
- In 2017 I was awarded a $1.3M AUD (NHMRC) to compare the impact of school vs community distribution of albendazole in school-age children in the Vietnam.

- I  co-lead studies in aetiology of fever (Ethiopia and Timor-Leste).

- I am lead investigator in studies investigating the effectiveness of ivermectin for STH and scabies control (Timor-Leste and Solomon Islands), trachoma surveys in Nauru and the Solomon Islands (Fred Hollows Foundation, $84.5k $96.6k AUD), impact assessments of control programs on schistosomiasis and STH in Angola ($175k AUD, Mentor) and of STH, scabies and yaws in Vanuatu ($253k AUD, Bridges to Development, NHMRC Partnership $1.5M).

- I am part of the Australian National Trachoma Surveillance and Reporting Unit (Department of Health, $1.3M AUD).  

Prior to UNSW, upon re-joining academia in 2012, I coordinated a program of research implemented in Timor-Leste, that included:

1) intervention studies on the role of WASH on soil-transmitted helminths (STH) (NHMRC) and school vs community deworming (Gates);

2) spatial analysis of dengue and

3) patient costs associated with tuberculosis (RSPH-ANU & WHO).

Additional studies in Timor-Leste included: 1) Investigating zoonotic transmission of Ascaris species; 2) Assessment of environmental enteropathy; and 3) Efficacy of albendazole.

In Indonesia I was an associate investigator in a trial assessing the impact of a sanitation intervention on infection with STH (NHMRC).

In Myanmar I was involved in a pilot study looking at STH infection levels in school children (DFAT).

In Papua New Guinea I was co-investigator in a study evaluating the impact of an obstetric and neonatal care training program on the provision of these services (Unicef).
