I am a PhD student in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology supervised by Dr Patrick Walker, Dr Thomas Churcher, and Dr Ellie Sherrard-Smith. For my PhD study, I aim to utilise routinely collected disease surveillance data and mathematical modelling techniques to inform infectious disease control programs in Indonesia. Diseases that I aim to focus on currently are malaria and COVID-19.
