Clare is a postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD) group within the Public Health Research Interventions Program (PHIRP) at the Kirby Institute. Her main research focus is soil-transmitted helminths, scabies, and trachoma.

Clare's background is in molecular cell biology, where she holds a PhD, and she recently completed her dual Master's degree in Public Health and International Public Health at UNSW. Clare has a varied background, with experience as a Project Manager, Medical Writer and Medical Editor in the Medical Communications industry, and more recently working as a Researcher and Project Manager in the Eastern Cape of South Africa on a large longitudinal cohort study of adolescents with HIV.

I am currently the trial coordinator for the Community Deworming against Soil-Transmitted Helminths (CoDe-STH), which is a large NHMRC-funded clinical trial in Vietnam comparing the effectiveness of community-wide mass deworming with albendazole and school-based targeted deworming with albendazole, in terms of reducing STH prevalence in school-aged children (https://kirby.unsw.edu.au/project/community-deworming-against-soil-transmitted-helminths-code-sth).
