Summary

 

Summary

I am a post-doctoral research associate working in the malaria group with Tom Churcher in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. My current work includes modelling the potential impact of transmission-blocking vaccines and using experimental hut trials to evaluate novel insecticides.

I have also worked with Lucy Okell within the department, developing within-host models of both treated and untreated malaria infections.This modelling work enables us to estimate the impact that imperfect adherence to treatment has on patient outcomes.

My PhD was completed at The University of Manchester with Professor Alan McKane. My PhD work focused on stochastic population dynamics, with an emphasis on individual-based modelling. Following my PhD I spent two years at The University of Florence, working with Professor Duccio Fanelli.
