I am a Research Associate based in the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis.

My current research focuses on using mathematical modelling to explore strategies for eradicating malaria, by looking at how limited resources and budgets can be optimally allocated in time, geographically and to different interventions to reduce the global malaria burden. This involves the integration and further development of existing models for two human malaria parasites, Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax.

Before my postdoc, I completed a PhD on modelling the impact and cost-effectiveness of treatment interventions for hepatitis B in sub-Saharan African at Imperial College.
