Research Interests

My main area of research is in the development of mathematical models to simulate the spread of livestock and zoonotic diseases. I have a particular interest in the targeting of control in the event of an outbreak to minimise the spread of disease.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Mathematical modelling of infectious diseases
  • Infectious disease control
  • Model ftting and parameter estimation
  • Cross-scale modelling of infectious diseases
