MSc Student - Control of Infectious Diseases

I am an MSc student at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) studying the Control of Infectious Diseases. I have a background in Biological Sciences with a BSc from the University of Warwick, and I am very passionate about Neglected Tropical Disease research. Particularly, my personal interests lie mainly within the worm diseases (e.g., schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis, onchocerciasis and the soil-transmitted helminths), but I also have a strong interest in rabies elimination. I am currently undertaking a research project focussing on the role of mathematical modelling as evidence for policy in the integrated control of neglected diseases, under the supervision of Professor Graham Medley (with the NTD Modelling Consortium).
