I completed my undergraduate degree in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology with a certificate in Global Health & Health Policy at Princeton University in 2015. My research at Princeton focused on the dynamics of endemic cholera, for which I worked with the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh.


I spent the year following graduation on a Fulbright Research Grant to India, working on the drivers of antimicrobial-resistant infections with the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy in New Delhi.


Now at Cambridge as a PhD student and Gates-Cambridge Scholar, I continue to study emerging infectious disease dynamics with a focus on bat-borne zoonoses.

Research Interests

I am interested broadly in the ecology of infectious disease, particularly in using mathematical models to better understand the processes underlying emerging and re-emerging diseases.
