I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the Centre for Biodiversity and Environment Research (CBER), based within Kate Jones’ research group. My research mainly focuses on understanding the impacts of climate change and other socio-ecological drivers on the dynamics, risk and emergence of zoonotic and vector-borne diseases. I am trained as a biologist and quantitative ecologist, although my work draws broadly on methods and concepts from ecology, epidemiology, infectious disease modelling, public health and global change sciences.

In my current role at UCL I am working with colleagues in the UK and Nigeria to co-develop environmentally-driven forecasting tools for emerging zoonotic diseases, as part of the Trinity Challenge-funded Sentinel Forecasting project. Before this, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (2020-22), completed both my PhD (2017-20) and MRes (2014-15) at University College London, and in 2019 conducted a summer research fellowship at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA YSSP).

I am an active member of the Viral Emergence Research Initiative (VERENA) research consortium, where I work with international colleagues on new approaches to understanding and predicting viral emergence.
