I am a postdoc in Prof. Lauren Meyers’ group at the University of Texas at Austin as part of the MIDAS Consortium.
My work focuses on the dynamics of respiratory viruses in Texas, and especially how infection by these viruses affects groups at high-risk for severe outcomes. I use statistical and dynamical models to explore these problems.
I completed my PhD at Imperial College London, studying the spatio-temporal dynamics of the 1918 influenza pandemic.
