Before starting my PhD at the University of Cambridge, I completed my Undergraduate Masters in Mathematics at the University of Oxford (2014-2018), and then worked as a Research Assistant at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (2019). At LSHTM, I worked in vaccine epidemiology with Prof. Mark Jit and Prof. Kaja Abbas, evaluating the impact and cost of one-dose vs two-dose HPV vaccination campaigns.



My current research, funded by the Wellcome Trust, explores the role of infectious disease modelling in international outbreak response. We are interested in how mathematical modelling is used by governments, health organisations and other decision-makers during a health crisis, and whether the process can be improved.

Please get in touch if you are interested in this project or any of the other papers I am working on.
