Principal Investigator


Eunice is an epidemiologist by training with an interest in vaccine science and policy. She completed my PhD in Global Disease Epidemiology and Control at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. She joined the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme (KWTRP) in 2019 as the Project Director for the Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine (PCV) Impact Study, a longstanding assessment of the impact of PCV on pneumococcal carriage and clinical disease in Kenya. Prior to joining KWTRP, she worked at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health on various vaccine-related studies, including global evaluations of the impact of PCVs on invasive pneumococcal disease, and evaluations of the effectiveness of mHealth interventions on vaccination uptake.
