I am an Honorary Assistant Professor affiliated with the Department of Global Health and Development in the Faculty of Public Health and Policy. I am an infectious disease epidemiologist and mathematical modeller, and  I employ mathematical models and statistical analyses to study the transmission dynamics of infectious diseases and the impact of maternal and reproductive health interventions.

I gained a BA in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge before studying for a MSc in Control of Infectious Diseases here at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). I went on to research HIV epidemiology and mathematical modelling during my PhD in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Imperial College London. Since then I have worked modelling HIV/STIs during my Sir Henry Wellcome Postdoctoral Research Fellowship held at Imperial College, as well as working as a health economist on a wide range of medical conditions during my time in industry. I returned to LSHTM in 2014 to work on maternal and reproductive health. I am currently on a career break but I'm continuing to work evaluating HIV interventions, as well as working on other projects including pneumococcus serotype distribution and Chagas disease control.
