I am a mathematical modeler, with experience in modelling infectious diseases in a range of settings. I am currently the TB Modelling and Analysis Consortium (TB MAC) Secretariat Epidemiologist and a member of the TB Modelling Group. I am currently working in the fields of drug-resistant tuberculosis and treatment adherence.

I was awarded a BSc (hons) in Mathematics from Rhodes University, South Africa, and an MSc and PhD in Mathematical Biology from the University of Bath. Before joining the school I worked in the field of global food security at Rothamsted Research, developing spatially-explicit models for the control of cassava diseases in sub-Saharan Africa.
