I am interested in using mathematical models to inform decisions on vaccination policies on meningitis in the African meningitis belt. Currently, my work focuses on figuring the key age group(s) to be targeted on the pentavalent vaccines due to be licenced by the end of 2022 in the African meningitis belt in order to maximize health benefits at a minimum cost.

I am an applied infectious diseases epidemiologist. My research focusses on emerging and high consequence infectious diseases, covering aspects such as risk factor identification, development of novel surveillance systems and outbreak response mechanisms. My current research is primarily concerned with the early detection and prevention of spillover-borne outbreaks of emerging zoonotic diseases.
