My research interests are in the use of mathematical modelling to support prepardness and decision making during infectious disease outbreaks.

I am currently a Research Fellow in real-time modelling of infectious disease outbreaks in the Centre for Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. Before joining the School I worked for the World Health Organisation as part of the 2018-2020 North-Kivu Ebola outbreak response. I received my PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Warwick.
