I have a BSc in European Public Health from Maastricht University (NL), and an MSc in Epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. I have been working in transmission modelling at the School since 2017. Previously, I worked as a web-developer for multiple years.

Teaching

I teach on the Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases (EPM301) and Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases (EPM302) distance learning modules, and on the Introductory Course in Epidemiology & Medical Statistics (ICEMS) short course

Research

My work focusses on the evaluation of optimal strategies to deliver pneumococcal vaccines to crisis-affected populations. This is a joint project between LSHTM, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, and the Murdoch's Children Research Institute. I am supervised by Stefan Flasche, Francesco Checchi, and Roz Eggo.

Previously, I worked on vaccine impact modelling with Mark Jit, Andy Clark, Kaja Abbas, and Petra Klepac, to study the impact of vaccine investments by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, in 96 low and lower-middle income countries. This was part of the broader Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium (VIMC).
