Summary

 

Summary

I currently work for Professor Katharina Hauck on DAEDALUS - an integrated epidemic and economic model to evaluate public-health interventions in response to pandemics. Applications include models curated for countries currently making policy decisions to respond to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and assessing the return on investment of preparations made for future pandemics.

Previously, at the MRC Biostatistics Unit, I worked on developing network epidemic models to assess adaptive trial designs for vaccines, and on integrated transport and health-impact modelling (ITHIM). I completed my PhD in the Theoretical Systems Biology group of Imperial College London under the supervision of Professor Michael Stumpf, with thesis title "Probabilistic modelling of noise as a driving force in biological systems".
