I am an infectious disease modeller at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). In 2018, I received my PhD in Public Health from the Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health at the National University of Singapore, where I maintain an honorary position as a research fellow. I collaborate closely with the National Tuberculosis Programme, National Center for HIV/AIDS, Dermatology and STD in Cambodia Ministry of Health, and the World Health Organization to build computational models for infectious diseases and conduct cost-effectiveness and feasibility studies. I chair the seminars at the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (CMMID), where I am also a member of the CMMID COVID-19 working group.
