I am a Research Fellow in the Applied HIV Epidemiology group in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology. My research focuses on the development and application of mathematical models to answer questions about the impact and cost-effectiveness of HIV prevention and care strategies in sub-Saharan Africa, with the aim of informing health policy. 

I received my DPhil in Zoology from the University of Oxford (2011), MSc in Epidemiology from Imperial College London (2006) and BA in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge (2005).
