Her research interests include NTDs and optimizing strategies for the control of infectious diseases. She is currently working on the evaluation of the Gashiyaro programme, a large-scale deworming effort for STH and schistosomiasis combined with water and sanitation interventions in the Wolaita zone of Ethiopia, with particular interest on compliance to treatment.
