I am a PhD student in the Department of Infectious Disease Epiedmiology where I am supervised by Professor Azra GhaniDr Alexandra Hogan and Dr Patrick Walker

My project is focused around the next-generation of malaria vaccine candidates, where I am investigating mathematical models of vaccine induced correlates of protection and integrating these models into a mathematical model of malaria transmission to explore the impact of next-generation vaccines on malaria incidence and deaths across Sub-Saharan Africa. 

More broadly I am interested in vaccine epidemiology and the utility of vaccines in preventing childhood illness with a focus in low and middle income countries,  vulnerable populations and outbreak scenarios.
