I am an epidemiologist with an interest in the use of statistical and mathematical models to inform infectious disease control. My team and I currently collaborate with UNICEF and the World Health Organization within the Global Polio Eradication Initiative to support vaccination strategies and policy decisions for controlling poliomyelitis and preventing future outbreaks.

As part of the COVID-19 working group within the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases, I have contributed to works assessing the role of climate in COVID-19 mitigation strategies and risk factors for infection in low and middle income countries.
