I am an epidemiologist who specialises in the use of statistical and mathematical models to assist in developing control strategies for infectious diseases. I have recently joined the LSHTM to work primarily with Laith Yakob and Oli Brady on the ZikaPLAN and ZikaAlliance consortia.   

Prior to LSHTM I was at Imperial College London where I held a MRC methodology research fellowship that focussed on development of statistical methods applied to polio eradication and other vaccine preventable diseases. This research was in collaboration with the WHO Polio Eradication Initiative, and it has been a valuable opportunity to contribute to a global health priority.
