A consistent theme in my research is to include young scientists at every stage of a project. The best way to learn how to do research, is to do research under the supervision of someone who has more experience. That was how I learned, and is now how I practice. As a testament to this, in the period 2011-16, I co-authored 25 peer review publications with student mentees - most commonly with the students as lead authors.

As an infectious disease research, my professional interests are focused on the epidemiology of respiratory diseases. However, I frequently mentor outside of my discipline when encountering interesting and novel problems. Recent examples include work on developing a smart phone App for subject identification in low and middle income settings; a meta analysis of published meta-analyses, aiming to see whether results of meta-analyses published through the Cochrane Collaboration differed systematically from reviews on the same topic, but published outside of the Cochrane Collaboration; and an analysis around transparency in the disclosure of the results of completed clinical trials.
