Summary

 

Summary

I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. 


My research focuses on developing mathematical models to help understand the transmission and control of dengue. I am particularly interested in mosquito population dynamics, and understanding how spatial heterogeneity in mosquito population density affects vector population persistence and control at fine spatial scales. I am also interested in developing mathematical models to explore the within-host dynamics of dengue virus infection. 

My PhD, titled 'Modelling the persistence and control of Aedes aegypti at fine spatial scales', was completed in the department under the supervision of Prof. Neil Ferguson and Prof. Azra Ghani
