The Marshall Aid Commemoration Commission and the Marshall Sherfield Fellowship Foundation are pleased to announce the appointment of the 2019 Marshall Sherfield Fellow: Ms Jackie Knee – Georgia Institute of Technology

As a Marshall Sherfield Fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Jackie will study enteric pathogen exposure risks along the food supply chain in communities in Kenya and Mozambique. Jackie’s research interests exist at the intersection of public health, microbiology, and environmental science and engineering. She is particularly interested in the environmental transmission and health effects of enteric pathogens in low-resource areas. Jackie has worked in the interdisciplinary water, sanitation, and hygiene sector for over 10 years and will receive her PhD in Environmental Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2019.

The Fellowships, which are funded by the Marshall Sherfield Fellowship Foundation, and administered by the Marshall Commission, enable American scientists or engineers to undertake post-doctoral research for a period of one to two academic years at a British university or research institute.

The aim of the Marshall Sherfield Fellowships is to introduce American scientists and engineers to the cutting edge of UK science and engineering. It is intended that this in turn will build longer-term contacts and international links between the United Kingdom and the United States in key scientific areas.
