Kerryn is a PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne, studying malaria in pregnant women under the supervision of Dr Freya Fowkes and A/Prof Julie Simpson. She is based part-time at the Shoklo Malaria Research Unit – a field station of the Faculty of Tropical Medicine, Mahidol University – on the Thai-Myanmar border.
She completed a Masters of Science in Epidemiology at the University of Melbourne in 2013, with a focus on infectious disease and global health. The focus of her PhD is on the effect of malaria in pregnancy and antimalarial drugs on miscarriage, stillbirth, and neonatal death, and on the optimal schedule for antenatal screening for malaria to avert adverse outcomes.
