My principal research interests lie in infectious disease epidemiology, more specifically the epidemiology and modelling of parasite-related diseases and the effect of climate change on infectious disease dynamics. I am primarily interested in the spatio-temporal factors that influence infectious disease dynamics, and how these may be manipulated to create sustainable disease control. Much of this work is achieved by the combination of theoretical models with empirical data to better understanding infectious disease epidemiology and parasite-host relationship.
