BSU Research OverviewI’m a PhD student at the MRC Biostatistics Unit. My current research involves the development of multi-state models to estimate HIV incidence and evaluate the role of prevention interventions in controlling HIV transmission. I have a background in public health and previously worked as an epidemiologist, focussing on HIV surveillance and monitoring in the UK.
My PhD supervisors are Professor Daniela De Angelis, Dr Anne Presanis and Dr Paul Birrell.
