I am interested in using statistical, computational and mathematical methods to research topics in epidemiology, and public health. In particular, I aim to produce research that finds practical solutions to problems.
I work in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London as a researcher, with Thomas Churcher. My work here involves developing statistical approaches to monitor the path to malaria elimination, assessing the economic impact of malaria control and statistical and computational modelling of aspects of mosquito vector ecology.
I was formerly at the University of Oxford, where I worked on mosquito vectors with Ace North and Charles Godfray. My work involved two distinct topics: 1. the use of modified mosquitoes as a way to control wild mosquito populations, and 2. improving existent knowledge about wild mosquitoes in general.
As part of my work on mosquito ecology, I have been fortunate to be part of Target Malaria – a research consortium that aims to develop and share technology for malaria control.
