Summary

 

Summary

My research interests are in modelling the spread of infectious diseases.  Current work is focused on developing models for quantitatively comparing the transmissibility of different strains of influenza virus.

Previously, I worked for Public Health England in the Emergency Response Department on the European Union funded project, PANDHUB, and I was involved in the 2014 UK response to the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.  During my Ph.D. studies at Durham University, I devised mathematical models for the spread of cultural traits with an interest in health-related behaviours, such as excessive drinking.
