I am a modeller and my scientific interests are in designing and using mathematical models to understand and solve problems in biology, medicine, epidemiology and public health with an emphasis on collaborative and interdisciplinary research. My modelling interests are in HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and cholera.
I am involved in the teaching of Basic Mathematics, Basic Statistics, Modelling and the Dynamics of Infectious Diseases and Introduction to infectious Disease Modelling and its Applications.
I am a member of the Social and Mathematical Epidemiology Group (SaME) in the Department of Global Health and Development. My research involves the use mathematical theories and methods as tools to understand infectious disease transmission dynamics in order to establish efficient and cost effective ways to control their spread and identifying the mechanisms that facilitate their spread across populations and heterogeneous landscapes.
My current research is on modeling HIV transmission dynamics in West Africa and assessing the utility of different interventions (condom use, pre-exposure prophylaxis and antiretroviral treatment) targeted at high-risk groups (Female Sex Workers, Clients and Pimps) and the general population.
