I am a visiting researcher at the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis.

My research focuses on the use of mathematical modelling of infectious disease transmission to understand how diseases spread and inform control policies. Much of my recent research has been on HIV transmission, prevention and treatment among key populations, including men who have sex with men, in India, Nigeria, China and the United States. 

I am currently a Lecturer in Public Health at Glasgow Caledonian University London.
