I began my PhD at LSHTM in 2017, where I reasearch the dynamics of respiratory viruses. Before that I completed my MSc in Control of Infectious Disease at LSHTM in 2015 and studied Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge (2011-2014). I also have experience working in the technology sector.

My general research interests are in dynamics of viruses, especially respiratory viruses, as well as techniques for statistical inference and their computational implementation.

I very much enjoy collaborative work, and have organised various events, including a collaborative coding workshop at LSHTM.

Teaching

I have tutored in Statistics and Epidimiology modules at masters levels, as well as a vareity of undergraduate biological sciences modules.

Research

My PhD is funded by the MRC London Intercollegiate Doctoral Training Partnership between LSHTM and St George’s University.

My research looks at interactions between respiratory viruses, primarily Respiratory Syncytical Virus (RSV), influenza and coronaviruses. I have investigated to what extent it is possible to detect interaction between these viruses using modelling and inference techniques. I am now developing this further with case studies in different geographical environments in order to determine the extent of interaction, and the public health implications it may have.
