As a Research Fellow in TB epidemiology, I work on a range of projects within the TB modelling group ranging from studying ventilation in enclosed spaces to understanding the natural history of diseases. I am also currently working on a project to assess the impact of COVID-19 on TB using TB models.

Previously, I led the application of the TIME model in six high TB burden settings generating cost-effectiveness analyses of various control strategies. I also developed an impact evaluation protocol for the TIME model to understand how the project facilitates and impacts national and subnational TB policy.

Prior to joining LSHTM I worked on health policy research at Chatham House in the Centre for Global Health Security and I have experience working for the NHS. I have a BSc (Joint Hons) in Natural Sciences from the University of Nottingham and an MSc in the Control of Infectious Diseases from LSHTM.

Research

My current area of research is supporting evidence based policy decisions for TB control using mathematical modelling, economic and epidemiology data from routine surveillance and operational research.

I have previous experience in qualitative research, I worked on a WHO led project to understand behavioural factors contributing to antimicrobial resistance with a focus on educators and prescribers in Tamil Nadu, India. I have also worked on projects related to One Health including vaccine development for livestock to limit the use of antimicrobials.
