Dr Anne Wilson, PhD
I am an epidemiologist with an interest in treatment and control of malaria and other vector borne diseases. I am particularly interested in multi-sectoral approaches to vector control and how this collaborative working can be better facilitated.
In addition I am interested in vector control trial design, evidence synthesis and use of evidence to support policy. My PhD was on generation and use of evidence to support vector control. I have experience writing WHO guidelines and providing technical support to country programmes on integrated vector management. I have experience in conducting systematic reviews and meta analysis and am currently working on a Cochrane Review of larval source management for malaria control.
I have managed operational research projects on malaria treatment and diagnosis in both Ghana and Zanzibar. I am an alumni of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and graduated with an MSc in Public Health in Developing Countries in 2010. Before starting my MSc I worked for a number of years in the pharmaceutical industry with a focus on regulatory affairs in emerging markets and clinical trial design.
