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 in different host species.
I completed my PhD in the department under the supervision of Prof. Neil Ferguson and Prof. Azra Ghani.
