I am a PhD student within the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis, supervised by Dr Anne Cori, Dr Pierre Nouvellet and Professor Neil Ferguson. My current work focuses on assessing and improving methods for real-time outbreak forecasting.

Previous work included research into the optimisation of vector control for malaria and the parameterisation of mathematical models to help predict the most effective interventions in different settings.

I have a BSc Biological Sciences (Microbiology and Infectious Disease) from the University of Exeter (2016) and an MSc Control of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (2017).
