I am a Research Associate examining the effects of intervention strategies on infectious disease dynamics through the use of mathematical modelling. I am currently working on the burden and impact of vaccination on Yellow Fever in Africa as part of the Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium, funded by Gavi, the vaccine alliance.

Previously, I have worked on modelling norovirus transmission at population level with a view to examining vaccination strategies. My PhD focused on modelling cholera transmission in spatially heterogeneous populations.
