About me

I am currently doing my PhD in Life Sciences at the University of Warwick and part of The Zeeman Institute: Systems Biology and Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research (SBIDER). I am interested in population level immune dynamics resulting from co-circulating and sequential outbreaks of closely related viruses. At the moment I am focussing on flaviviruses, in particular dengue and Zika. My supervisors are Mike Tildesley and Erin Gorsich.
