Summary

 

Summary

I am a Research Fellow working for the HIV Prevention Trials Network (HPTN) Modelling Centre. I use mathematical modelling of HIV transmission amongst key populations (including men who have sex with men) to inform and interpret clinical trials being developed and conducted by the HPTN.

An introduction to the work of the HPTN modelling centre

I did my PhD at the University of Edinburgh, modelling immune responses to human schistosomiasis infection at the population level. I then worked at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, modelling HIV and STI transmission and control amongst key populations in southern India, China and Nigeria.

TEACHING

I teach on the short course Introduction to Mathematical Models of the Epidemiology & Control of Infectious Diseases and the MSc in Epidemiology.
