I began my PhD at LSHTM in 2016 where I am researching mathematical models of vector borne diseases in the Pacific.

I completed a MSc in Medical Statistics at LSHTM in 2016 having previously studied Economics at Cardiff University (2010-2013) and worked at the Office for National Statistics.

Teaching

I assist in teaching on Basic Maths, Extended Epidemiology and STATA classes. 

Research

My PhD is funded by the MRC London Intercollegiate Doctoral Training Partnership between LSHTM and St George’s University. 

My doctoral project focusses on the dynamics of dengue and Zika virus transmission in the Pacific Island countries and territories. I am studying individual island epidemics and also modelling transmission in the wider Pacific region to better understand how these mosquito-borne viruses transmit within and between islands.
