Research

I collaborate closely with the national Tuberculosis and HIV programmes in Cambodia Ministry of Health, and WHO to build computational models for infectious diseases and conduct cost-effectiveness and feasibility studies.

During the 2016 Zika outbreak in Singapore, I worked closely with a national team led by the Singapore Ministry of Health to analyse almost real-time outbreak data. The efforts were published in a comprehensive paper documenting the outbreak.
