Summary

 

Summary

I am a PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology of Infectious Diseases, supervised by Drs Tom Churcher, Ben Lambert and Samir Bhatt. My PhD is focused on investigating the public health impact of the spread of pyrethroid resistance in malaria vectors. I am funded by the Medical Research Council.

I hold a BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Sciences (Infectious Diseases) from the University of Edinburgh and a Master of Public Health (Global Health) from Imperial College. For my MPH dissertation, I investigated the dynamics of Plasmodium species composition as countries progress towards malaria elimination. I also worked as a Research Assistant for a year in Imperial's Malaria Modelling Research Group, under Dr Tom Churcher.
