I am a research associate in health economic modelling at ScHARR, University of Sheffield, UK, which I joined in 2013. I originally studied mathematics at Girton College, Cambridge before doing my PhD in theoretical physics at Imperial College London. I also have an Open degree from the OU for which I mainly studied biological subjects. After my PhD, I worked on infectious disease modelling as a post-doc at Imperial College London, and then at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.

Research interests

  • Infectious disease modelling.
  • The epidemiology of TB, particularly in settings with high-HIV prevalence, and population-level TB interventions.
  • TB in children.
  • Individual-based modelling methodologies.
  • Methods for model calibration and uncertainty analysis.

Teaching interests

I teach on the HEDM masters course.

Professional activities

I am a member of the Operational Research Society and the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene.


  • Developing an user-friendly transmission and economic model for TB diagnostics (with David Dowdy & Jeff Pennington)
  • Modelling the transmission of hepatitis B in among PWID in the UK, and assessing the cost-effectiveness of contingency management for vaccination (with Rachid Rafia and Alan Brennan)
  • Modelling the burden of paediatric TB (with James Seddon)
  • Markov modelling of HF and COPD HES records for health economic models of telemonitoring (with Praveen Thokala, Alan Brennan and Simon Dixon)
  • Modelling community interventions for TB in high-HIV prevalence settings (with Gwen Knight and Richard White)
