My current research lies at the intersection of statistics and epidemiology. My focus is on building and assessing Bayesian evidence synthesis models, motivated by a need, for healthcare policy-makers, to know the burden of infectious disease: prevalence, incidence and severity. Available evidence is usually observational, from multiple, disparate and biased data sources. Key projects include:

- the estimation of HIV and HCV prevalence, particularly undiagnosed prevalence, in the UK and in Europe, in collaboration with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA, formerly Public Health England) and Health Protection Scotland;
- the estimation of severity of respiratory infections, including seasonal and pandemic influenza, secondary bacterial infection, and COVID-19, in collaboration with UKHSA, WHO Europe and ECDC;
- and generalised methods for model building, criticism and comparison in complex evidence synthesis, motivated by the above applications and focussing on conflict diagnostic methods.
