Dr Ann Kelly is a Reader (Associate Professor) in Global Health and Deputy Director of the MSc in Global Health & Social Justice programme.
An anthropologist by training (Cambridge University, 2007), Ann’s ethnographic research has often been intertwined with public health interventions and disease control programmes, particularly in sub-Saharan Africa.
Her work has received support from a wide range of funders, including the Wellcome Trust, the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Leverhulme Trust.
She is a member of the steering committee of the UK Ebola Response Anthropology Platform, an initiative jointly funded by the Wellcome Trust and Department for International Development (DfID) to assist in the containment of the recent outbreak.

Ann has addressed a number of substantive topics, from mosquito control programmes in urban and rural contexts to emergency clinical trials during the recent West African Ebola outbreak.
In addition to working with a range of entomologists, biologists, parasitologists, public health experts and geneticists, she is currently working with a group of sustainable architects, urban designers and landscape artists in an effort to ‘hack’ fundamental paradoxes of mosquito rearing, collection and release.
Ann is happy to supervise students looking to study in her area of expertise.
