I'm a second year PhD student, working with Prof Samir Bhatt, Dr Elizaveta Semenova, Dr Xenia Miscouridou and Dr Thomas Mellan. My main interests are applications of Bayesian Statistics and Machine Learning in Epidemiology.

During years 2020-21 I was involved in the COVID-19 response research. I have an MSc in Applied Mathematics and an MRes in  Infectious Disease Epidemiology. Before joining the PhD programme, I spent 2 years working as a Data Scientist.

I'm also a co-organiser in the Earth Observation Network.
