I am a Medical doctor (MD) with 8 years’ experience spanning tropical medicine, vaccine pharmacovigilance and paediatric vaccine trials.

I successfully led the conduct of a phase 3 trial of a new pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, Pneumosil in the Gambia. My postgraduate degrees are in Vaccinology and Pharmaceutical clinical development (Siena) and Global health and infectious diseases (Edinburgh).

I am passionate about educating peers and locals in Africa about the safety and efficacy of vaccines as well as engaging with policymakers to enhance access to lifesaving immunization in the Africa region.
