Teaching

At LSHTM I am the Programme Director for the MSc Veterinary Epidemiology.  I tutor MSc Veterinary Epidemiology students and supervise summer projects for MSc Veterinary Epidemiology and MSc Epidemiology students.  I typically teach on the MSc modules Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases and Epidemiology in Practice.  At UCL I organize the masters-level module Principals of Epidemiology Applied to Electronic Health Records Research, one of the core modules for UCL’s MSc Data Science.

Research

My research focuses on estimating the community burden and impact of acute infections, particularly influenza and other respiratory viruses.  I have a strong interest in pandemics, emerging infections and zoonotic infections as well as the design of community-level surveys and cohort studies.
