Summary


At Imperial, I worked at the HIV Modelling Consortium on a model comparison project of HIV epidemic models with the supervision of Dr Jeff Eaton and Prof Tim Hallett. I'm currently developing an evaluation of the heuristics used to interpret model outputs for policy purposes (i.e. should policy makers be averaging multiple models, or selecting one?). I have also contributed to the first WHO guidelines on model comparison studies. 

I have an MRes in Systems and Synthetic Biology from Imperial College London, where I looked into the acquisition of drug resistance in S. aureus,  and an MSc in Public Health (Health Economics) from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. At the London School I analysed Unitaid survey data, estimating regional level out-of-pocket expenses and time invested in health facility visits for people living with HIV (PLHIV). 

Currently, I am working at Public Health England as a Surveillance and Prevention Scientist with the Gonococcal Resistance to Antimicrobial Surveillance Programme.
