Paediatric doctor, Samaritan's Purse International Relief

I am a doctor training in paediatrics with an interest in infectious diseases. From July 2014 to March 2015 I worked in Liberia addressing the largest Ebola epidemic in history through the aid organisation, Samaritan's Purse International Relief. Working from both a clinical medical and aid perspective I treated Ebola patients, operated an Ebola treatment unit, developed several further Ebola treatment facilities, trained healthcare workers and assisted with developing a mobile rapid response strategy to target cluster outbreaks of Ebola in rural, inaccessible areas.

I am now embarking on research into Ebola virus disease at Imperial College London.
