I am a research fellow working with Mike Tildesley on modelling the potential spread and control of livestock diseases on US farms. This work is part of a collaborative project with Colorado State University, United States Department of Agriculture and Linköping University. It is funded by the Department of Homeland Security.
I completed my PhD at the University of Liverpool under the supervision of Professor Mike Begon and Professor Peter Diggle. My research focused on the dynamics of leptospirosis infection in wild rat populations in Brazilian urban slums. The aim was to understand how infection is spread and how rodent populations can be controlled using a combination of mathematical models and statistical analyses
