I am a First Year DPhil Statistics student funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). In brief, my research focus on the intersection of statistics and epidemiology. I aim to develop statistical and biomathematical methods to model, and better understand, the spread of infectious diseases. In particular, I am interested in exploring Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) and COVID-19. My undergraduate degree was the BSc Economics and Finance (Major in Maths and Statistics) from University College Dublin. Subsequently, I completed the MSc Statistics at Imperial College London, where I specialised in Biostatistics. My research thesis involved Bayesian phylodynamic modelling of age-specific transmission dynamics of HIV.
