October 2015


Most sincere thanks to CARTA for the support during my six week stay at the University of Warwick, under the supervision of Prof. Frances Griffiths. I visited with Prof. Griffiths to perform a systematic literature review as part of my research methodology. I’m currently registered with the University of Malawi's College of Medicine. My PhD research is embedded in the Majete Malaria Project (MMP). MMP is a collaboration of African Parks with Wageningen University, Amsterdam Medical Centre and University of Malawi’s College of Medicine, to set up a community-driven malaria prevention intervention study in a low income community surrounding a wild life reserve. I will be assessing the social implications of the intervention with regards to health behaviour and changes in socio-economic indicators.My time at Warwick was an incredibly fruitful experience in terms of getting me to think more critically
