Global Change, Infectious Diseases, Natural Hazards, Conflicts, Human Displacement 

I am a PhD student in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. My research focuses on how natural hazards and conflicts result in infectious disease outbreaks and how global change may alter this, with specific interests in drought, armed conflict, cholera, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo. 

I am currently on the Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Partnership at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment. I am also a visiting PhD student in UCL's Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction. 

My supervisor is Dr. Kris Murray, who is an ecologist with interests in global change, conservation and health. My co-supervisors are Dr. Katy Gaythorpe (Imperial College London) and Prof. Ilan Kelman (University College London).

I recently graduated from University College London with an MSc Climate Change and my background is in veterinary medicine, climate change and conservation.
