Research interests

Broad research areas

In using applied data science to investigate public health problems related to infectious diseases in low- and middle-income countries. I am currently investigating ways of improving disease estimates in countries aiming for elimination.

Delivery of healthcare in low-resource settings including access, health systems and health interventions.

Recent and current projects

Mapping for malaria elimination: Advances in mapping malaria for elimination: fine resolution modelling of Plasmodium falciparum incidence.

Equity delivery: Distribution and delivery of healthcare in low-and middle income countries

Healthcare utilisation for fever treatment: Using Bayesian IRT models to estimate treatment burden in low-resource settings.

SDG indicators and nationally representative survey data: Investigation precision in public health data-science.
