ePortfolio of Naomi Marsden

My name is Naomi and I'm currently in the second research year of an MIBTP funded PhD in the School of Life Sciences, University of Warwick. My research project is focused on using mathematical models to develop adaptive control strategies for the management of infectious diseases and is supervised by Mike Tildesley and Matt Keeling. I am also interested in improving the communication of research findings through the development of interactive web based applications.

In 2015 I gained an MSc in Applied Epidemiology from the University of Nottingham. Following this, I spent a year working as a research assistant in Mike Tildesley's group at both the University of Nottingham and the University of Warwick.

During the training year of my PhD, I completed an internship with the WHO Collaborating Centre on Pandemic Influenza and Research where I was involved with a survey of clinicians and meetings with patient participation groups to elicit their opinions on a future clinical trial investigating the effectiveness of neuraminidase inhibitors in patients hospitalised with influenza. I also spent three months in the University of Leicester's department of Biostatistics supervised by Alex Sutton and Nicola Cooper where I developed an app to automate network meta-analysis. This has undergone further development into MetaInsight and is now being used in meta-analysis training courses.
