Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in the Department of Management Science. My research is interdisciplinary and focuses on modelling to improve decision-making in healthcare policy, utilizing tools and methodologies from mathematical epidemiology, economics, and computer science, among other areas.


My main body of work involves systems modelling and simulation, including integrating disease and economic models for policy impact evaluation and prioritisation. I am particularly interested in agent-based modelling and hybrid models, which integrate modelling methodologies when this simplifies analyses. I am interested in both non-communicable disease and infectious disease as well as in how systems modelling can contribute to evaluating health system strengthening. I am currently doing work on antimicrobial resistance and vaccine financing among work in other areas. I am also conducting work related to Coivd-19.


I am affiliated with the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics, and Policy in Washington, DC, where I am a Fellow. I have a PhD in Management Science, focusing on modelling for healthcare policy, from the University of Strathclyde and an MA in economics and BA honours economics from McGill University, in Montreal.
