I am currently a Research Fellow in Real-time Modelling of Infectious Disease Outbreaks and joined the School in April 2020. I recently completed my PhD in infectious disease modelling at the University of Warwick and also worked as a consultant for the World Health Organisation during the 2018 - 2020 Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Research

I am interested in the application of mathematical modelling and quantitative methods to support outbreak response, although my first foray into infectious disease modelling was much more theoretical: my PhD thesis looked at the effect of metapopulation network structure on endemic disease dynamics.
