Naomi is a Research Fellow with a multi-disciplinary background in veterinary sciences, infectious disease immunology, vaccine development and public health and works across the social and natural sciences.
Naomi’s main research interests are in using interdisciplinary approaches to examine the interface between humans, animals and the environment, applying One Health principles to global health challenges. Most recently this has involved researching antimicrobial resistance within subsistence farming communities in India and Kenya and she is currently working as an Interdisciplinary Research Fellow on the UKRI GCRF Action against Stunting Hub, which aims to transform current research on child stunting by incorporating the ‘whole child’ approach.
Naomi joined LSHTM after periods of post-doctoral research at the Royal Veterinary College and the University of Oxford, where she undertook her DPhil on tuberculosis vaccine development. She has also worked as a policy advisor for the UK government and has a keen interest in addressing the challenges of translating basic science into practical and effective policy design. She is a member of the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and an Ambassador for AMR Insights.
