Dr Nicola Foster
BPharm MPH PhD
I initially trained and worked as a pharmacist in South Africa, followed by training in Public Health and Health Economics at the University of Cape Town. I have experience in designing and implementing mathematical models of patient pathways through tuberculosis screening, diagnosis and treatment. I am currently co-leading the health economics theme in the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (CMMID).
My current research focus includes analyses of the relationship between tuberculosis and change in poverty (relative and absolute poverty).
