Personal profile

Research interests

My research focusses on modelling the evolution of infectious diseases and their hosts. I am particularly interested in the evolution of age-structured patterns of immunity. I am currently investigating how trade-offs influence the magnitude and timing of changes in disease resistance as host organisms age. 

Teaching interests

I have tutored for a variety of modules in the maths department including Probability & Statistics, Linear Algebra, Numerical Analysis and PDEs. I enjoy teaching a wide range of material to students with different backgrounds and experiences. I also work for the Maths and Statistics Teaching service (MAST) and am an Associate Fellow of Advance HE (AFHEA).
