As of Spring 2015, I have moved to the NIHR funded Health Protection Research Unit on Healthcare Associated Infections and Antimicrobial Resistance at Imperial College London, where you can find an up-to-date profile.

At LSHTM, I was a research fellow in Infectious Disease modelling. Specifically, I was involved in modelling the dynamics of the disease Tuberculosis (TB) and the impact of a range of different control measures from new drug regimens to vaccines.

I completed my PhD in 2012 investigating various aspects, both modelling and experimental, of the hospital associated bacteria methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This was completed at CoMPLEX, UCL, with experimental and epidemiological work based at St George's Healthcare NHS Trust. Prior to this, I was awarded a BA in Mathematics from Oxford University, and an MSc in Mathematical Modelling from UCL. This led to an MRes in Modelling Biological Complexity at CoMPLEX.
