Overview

I am an Epidemiologist with research interests in infectious disease epidemiology, social epidemiology, digital health, and public health policy evaluation using big data. I have previously worked on research projects evaluating the mechanism of impact of policies on antimicrobial stewardship, smoking in adult and children, and the inequalities therein. I have a specific interest in the evaluation of digital applications for the management of infectious diseases, especially in LMICs.

I joined the MPH team at Cardiff University as a Lecturer in Public Health in Summer 2020. I have previously held teaching and research roles at Imperial College London and the University of Glasgow.
