I am an Honorary Lecturer in the School of Public Health at Imperial College, where I have ongoing collaborations with several members of the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology and the MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling. I previously held an Imperial College Junior Research Fellowship in infectious disease epidemiology in the department.
I use mathematical models and statistical analysis to study the evolution and transmission dynamics of infections with the aim of informing the design of more effective control interventions. I lead the NTD modelling consortium, an international network of epidemiological modellers contributing to the global efforts to control neglected tropical diseases (NTDs).
I am a professor and senior group leader at the Big Data Institute, in the University of Oxford. Prior to that I was a professor and deputy director of the Zeeman Institute, an interdisciplinary research centre at the University of Warwick. In my first two years at Warwick I held a joint position at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
