I am a full time PhD student at Centre for Environmental Health and Sustainability. I began work on my project, “Household indoor air pollution exposure modelling for health risk evaluation in Sub-Saharan Africa”, in September 2022. I graduated from the University of Leicester with a BSc in Physics in 2021, followed by an MSc Data Science from the University of Birmingham in 2022. I have expertise in data wrangling and modelling. My project is focused on the adaptation and tailoring of newly implemented tools from the World Health Organisation for modelling Acute Lower Respiratory Infection (ALRI) risk within the Sub-Saharan Africa context. In particular, I am working within South Africa in collaboration with the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC).

I am also currently supporting work on research projects involving the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), as well as the LEAP-EPI project (also in collaboration with SAMRC).
