Research

My research experience is on computational modelling of epidemiological, economic, and equity impact of infectious disease prevention and control policies and programmes.

My research focus is vaccine impact modelling at the interface of infectious disease epidemiology and health economics. I welcome collaborations in related research projects to improve health policy and practice, and you are welcome to contact me.
