About me

I am a final year PhD student at the Big Data Institute at the University of Oxford, where I work on mathematical models of infectious disease. I’m supervised by Charlie Whittaker, Christophe Fraser and Jasmina Panovska-Griffiths. You can find my resume here to look through all my previous experience. 

After my PhD, I hope to work on developing models to inform policymaking to address risks from emerging technologies.

I’m also an affiliate researcher at the Future of Humanity Institute and a collaborator at the NAO at the MIT Media Lab. During my PhD, I was awarded the ELBI fellowship and the Polaris Fellowship (run by Entrepreneurship First). 

Previously, I have: 

Outside of work, I enjoy writing unnecessarily long book reviews on Goodreads, powerlifting badly, and nurturing my collection of 23 house plants (I’m on track to turn my apartment in Oxford into a tropical rainforest).
