I joined the LSHTM in 2002. I have a background in computer science, operational research, mathematical modelling and economics.
Organiser of the distance learning module Analytical Models for Decision Making (AMDM) since 2013. AMDM is an elective module on the LSHTM MPH (Masters Degree in Public Health) programme.
Tutor on the face-to-face LSHTM MPH programme.
Developing computer models to help decision-makers make evidence-based choices about new and under-utilised vaccines. These models evaluate the costs, health impact and cost-effectiveness of haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) vaccine, pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV), rotavirus vaccine (RV) and human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine. The models have been used by Ministries of Health in over 30 low and middle income countries (LMICs). The models range from very simple Excel-based decision models through to more complex individual-based (micro-simulation) transmission models. The models have also been used at the global level to inform recommendations made by WHO's Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE).
