Alison Reynolds is a Technical Programme Manager within the Vector Biology Department, led by Professor Martin Donnelly. She received a BA in Geography from the University of Liverpool and an MA in International Politics from the University of Manchester. Alison has over 15 years’ experience in project management in academic and operational research and clinical trials, formerly working for the successful BMGF funded Malaria in Pregnancy Consortium led by Professor Feiko ter Kuile at LSTM. More recently Alison spent 4 years managing a portfolio of grants with the Malaria Modelling Research Group, in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Imperial College London.
Alison returned to LSTM in 2018 and over the past 2 years her work has focused on the implementation of digital tools to facilitate better data driven decision making and capacity strengthening for vector borne-disease control programmes. This has included the roll-out of the Disease Data Management System (DDMS+) for malaria and VL entomology data and the evaluation of digital gaming technologies as novel training tools for the vector control community under EU (DMC MalVec) and BMGF funded projects. Alison is currently working on the Innovation to Impact project which aims to improve the registration process of vector control tools at global and endemic country level.
