I am currently based at the World Health Organization in Geneva, working on operational research on tuberculosis.
I am a Research Fellow in the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (CMMID) and the TB Centre at LSHTM. I am also a member of the TB Modelling Group.
Before joining the school I worked as an epidemiologist at Public Health England in the Tuberculosis section at the Centre for Infectious Disease Surveillance and Control. Prior to this, I worked in East Africa with the United Nations in international development, with a focus on public health interventions.
I obtained my degree in Economics from Bocconi University in Italy and an MSc in Public Health in Developing Countries from LSHTM. I am currently pursuing a PhD in health economics and infectious disease epidemiology at LSHTM.
I supervise tutorials for the LSHTM MSc modules “Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases” and “Social Epidemiology”.
My primary research interest, and the topic of my PhD, is expanding the evidence base on the socioeconomic determinants of tuberculosis, through investigating ways to prevent people with TB from experiencing financial hardship and unnecessary suffering because of their illness.
