I work as a spatial data scientist exploring new data sources to improve understanding of infectious diseases and the control disease outbreaks. My background is in Geography at Syracuse University and Geoinformation Technology (MSc) at the University of Glasgow.
I have assisted with the Introduction to GIS course, taught a module in the Introduction to Python course for the Health Data Science MSc, and have helped to develop introductory public health GIS courses in Python and R.
Since joining LSHTM I have conducted research on largescale human movement, measuring migration flows in Uganda and DRC in response to the Ebola epidemic. My primary focus has been the COVID-19 pandemic where I have focused on patterns of human movement and the response to public health interventions in China, the UK, and Ghana.
