Jo also worked as a consultant, often working with implementers to design and/or evaluate projects and programmes, and more recently working with donors and international agencies in higher-level strategy and policy-development activities. He has worked in about 20 different countries, mostly in Africa and Southeast Asia, but also a little in Latin America and China.

His interests include the links between basic biology and public health, and the multi-sectoral nature of malaria: the influence of landscape, land-use, housing and development, and what residents can do for themselves to reduce the risk of malaria, while they are waiting for the government to deliver the promised interventions.
