Professor of Epidemiology, MRC Career Development Fellow, Nuffield Department of Medicine

My interests are in the development and application of empirical and biological models to address policy-relevant questions in tropical health. I lead a team of quantitative epidemiologists as part of the Malaria Atlas Project with support from the Medical Research Council and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Our focus is the geospatial modelling of malaria endemicity, using Bayesian geostatistical models to map malaria risk, examine patterns of change, and estimate clinical burden. Other work has considered the interactions between climate and vector ecology, the rational use of routine health reporting data, treatment seeking behaviour and transport models.
