I am a Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer in Mathematical modelling at University College London, and a Lecturer in Applied Mathematics at The Queen's College, Oxford University. 

My background is in mathematics having completed by undergraduate (BA), master (MMath) and doctoral (DPhil) studies in applied mathematics at Oxford University. After a Lectureship at Heriot-Watt University (September 2004 - May 2006) and a modeller position leading a Systems Biology Team at Unilever Corporate Research (May 2006 - December 2007) I joined UCL in December 2007, firstly as a Research Fellow within the Department of Mathematics (December 2007 -September 2010) and then as a Research Fellow within the Medical Physics and Bioengineering Department (September 2010-September 2012).


In September 2012 I took a position of a Lecturer in Modelling Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) whilst attaining an honorary position within the Department of Mathematics at UCL. In addition to this post, since February 2015 I have been a Senior Research Fellow at UCL (within Clinical Operational Reseach Unit (CORU - until Jan 2018) and in Department of Applied Health Research (DAHR since Jan 2018)).


Since September 2017, I am a Lecturer at Institute for Global Health within UCL, leading the Modelling for Decision Science (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/global-health/study/masters/health-economics-modules/modelling-for-decision-science) module which is a part of the MSc in Health Economics and Decision Science while also remaining part of DAHR.


I also hold an honorary Lectureship position at the Department of Mathematics and at CoMPLEX at UCL and the Wolfson Centre of Mathematical Biology at Oxford University and an honorary Academic Researcher post at Public Health England (PHE).


Research Summary

My research uses mathematics and statistics to answer existing and emerging health questions. 


I have over eight years experience of modelling infectious diseases and I am currently actively modelling COVID-19 transmission across different settings to inform decision making. I work closely with researchers at Public Health England, and advise the UK Department of Health and Social Care and the World Bank working across different projects.

I develop and apply machine learning and AI algorithms to facilitate medical diagnostic. Across two projects, I combine such algorithms on features from MRI images to classify different brain tumour by grade and mutation status. My work has recently been published at BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making (doi: https://doi.org/10.1101/19007898).

I also work closely with public health bodies to lend statistical support in evaluating different healthcare interventions across different settings in the UK. I recently lead studies evaluating large scale HIV testing intervention, published at the EClinical Medicine (doi: 10.1016/j.eclinm.2019.011.022) and exploring the impact of disruption of a care service for domestic violence and abuse, published at the BMC Health Service Research.


I am also part of the Optima HIV and TB consortiums (http://optimamodel.com) working on utilising models to help policy decisions makers optimally allocate public health resources.

Teaching Summary

Within UCL I teach a selection of modules at MSc level and actively supervise MSc projects. I lead the modelling for Decision making module as part of the a number of MSc degrees at the Institute for Global Health, (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/global-health/study/masters/health-economics-modules/modelling-for-decision-science) since October 2017.


As part of my Lecturer role at The Queen's College, Oxford I teach a selection of applied mathematics module to undergraduate students and also supervise MMath projects. 

I am very keen to support the development of undergraduate, postgraduate and early-career researchers and I have a record of successful supervision of postgraduate students. To date I have supervised to completion two PhD student, 23 MSc students and currently I am a PhD supervisor to 3 students at UCL.
