Research Departmental Lecturer in Infectious Disease

Research Interests

My D.Phil and first postdoctoral research projects were in the context of the population biology and control of dengue viruses, while my current research is focused on other viruses such as HIV, FluA, and HBV. I have recently started to work in the population biology of Streptococcus bacterium species. In general, my research interests are on the biological determinants of the population dynamics and genetics of multi-strain pathogens (ex. ecological, demographic, evolutionary, etc).

I am particularly keen in the application of mechanistic, dynamical models that allow for the interpretation of the biological system in terms of the individual behaviour and short-term evolution of both the host and pathogen (Individual-based models).
