Personal profile

Research interests

I am a second year PhD student studying at the University of Bath, as part of large and diverse CDT in applied mathematics, SAMBa. My interests lie broadly in mathematical biology with a focus on epidemiology. Last year I started my PhD in epidemiological dynamics in populations with demographic and spatial structure, under the supervision of Ben Adams and Sarah Penington. In particular, we are interested in developing an analysing household models for infectious disease epidemics.

The first project I worked on as part of my PhD explored the impact of household and neighbourhood structures on epidemic outcome. We hope to publish some of this content shortly. In my present work, we look to develop similar household frameworks for vector-borne diseases.

Before coming to Bath, I completed an integrated master's in mathematics at the University of Sheffield. Whilst studying there, I was involved in several research projects in the fields of evolutionary biology, cell biology and neuroblastoma treatments.
