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