Teaching

I teach postgraduate and professional courses on modelling and economics of infectious diseases, both at LSHTM and elsewhere.

Research

My main research interest is in epidemiological and economic modelling of vaccines and other infectious disease control interventions to support evidence-based public health decision making. In particular, my work has helped inform immunisation policy on a range of vaccines (including HPV, pneumococcal, rotavirus and influenza vaccines) in both developed and developing countries.
