I joined the staff of LSHTM in 2002. Most of my research involves evaluating the health and economic impact of different vaccines. This work is interdisciplinary (mathematical modelling, epidemiology, health economics, statistics, computer science and decision theory). I did my first degrees in Nottingham and my doctorate at LSHTM.
I organise and teach a module called Health Decision Science. This is an elective module on the distance learning masters degree programme. I also tutor students on the face-to-face programme. Students (Masters, PhD and DrPH) are welcome to contact me if they are interested in topics related to the impact, safety, equity and economics of vaccination.
My research involves developing quantitative models to evaluate the health and economic impact of different vaccines (mainly rotavirus, but also Hib, pneumococcal and HPV vaccines) in low-income and middle-income countries. These range from simple decision-support models through to complex individual-based transmission models. The models have been used by Ministries of Health in over 30 countries. They have also been used to inform WHO recommendations about vaccination schedules.
