Harriet Mpairwe

I am a clinician and epidemiologist based at the MRC/UVRI Uganda Research Unit in Entebbe, Uganda. I am currently a Wellcome Trust training fellow, and my post-doctoral research is investigating the risk factors associated with asthma among children in Uganda, with emphasis on chronic immune-modulating infections such as worms and malaria. I obtained my Master’s degree (Epidemiology) and PhD from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2005 and 2011, respectively. I am currently in Leiden as a LeidenASA visiting fellow at the African Studies Centre, from August to November 2017, where I plan to develop a project on m-Health.
