I obtained a PhD in mathematical biology from University College London (UCL) in 2006. Since then I have worked as a medical statistician in the Department of Primary Care and Population Sciences at UCL, before joining the Tropical Epidemiology Group in June 2008.
- Centre for Evaluation
- Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases
- Statistical Methodology
- Vaccine Centre
- Tropical Epidemiology Group
I am a course organizer for Design and Analysis of Epidemiological Studies (DANES) and teach on the courses Statistics for Epidemiology and Public Health (STEPH), and Advanced Statistical Methods in Epidemiology (ASME).
My research interests are in statistics, mathematical modelling and epidemiology.
I collaborate with investigators in The Gambia and Kenya on studies to evaluate the introduction of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines into the routine childhood vaccination schedule.
Currently I am also the principle statistician for a trial in which antibiotics are being given to women in labour with the aim of reducing bacterial transmission to infants (PregnAnZI).
