Sam is part of the NTD Epidemiology Research Group at Imperial, a member of the LCNTDR. His current research interest is in modelling the transmission of helminth parasites (hookworm, roundworm and whipworm, and schistosomes) and their control and potential elimination through mass drug administration.
His prior research experience includes modelling of dynamics and control in bacterial signalling, and the genetics of bacterial evolution.
He also maintains a broader interest in computational biology, complex systems and artificial intelligence.
Sam holds a PhD in Systems Biology from the University of Manchester and a BSc in Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence from the University of Sussex.
