I obtained my first degree in Mathematics and Statistics from Queen Mary, University of London and went on to obtain a Master's Degree in Computer Studies from the University of Essex.  I made use of both of these degrees in my PhD entitled "A Statistical Model of Internet Traffic" which I obtained from Queen Mary, University of London sponsored by British Telecommunications.

Before moving to LSHTM in August 2007, I worked as a Research Associate at the University of East Anglia from 2003 where I was involved in several research contracts which included studies of cost-effectiveness of wart treatment, a health needs assessment for Blundeston Prison, contamination in trials of educational interventions and the macro-economic impact of SARS and influenza.

Teaching

My teaching roles include Deputy Course Director for the Distance Learning M.Sc in Public Health, Course Organiser and tutor for the Basic Mathematics support sessions, Deputy Module Organiser for the school's distance learning module in the Economics of Global Health Policy and I tutor on the Health Policy, Planning and Finance M.Sc.

Research

My research is focused on analysing the macro-economic impact of health disorders and development of macro-economic models in various health-related contexts.  My areas of interest include infectious and communicable diseases such as SARS, influenza, antibiotic resistance and malaria and also non-communicable disease modelling and its implications for agriculture, food, the environment and trade.  I am particularly interested in health-related applications of Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) Modelling with GAMS and my current research involves health and macroeconomic modelling of palm oil policies in Thailand and the macroeconomic burden of Alzheimer's disease.
