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 assist with the Introduction to GIS course and am working 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. Recently, I have been focused on the acquisition and analysis of datasets measuring human movement in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
