Currently working on:My current research focuses on the mathematical modelling of infectious diseases. More specifically, I am interested in the evaluation of public policies for the control of infectious diseaseses (eg. vaccination). Other research interests include the investigation of the effect of demographic changes on the epidemiology of childhood diseases in SSA countries, vector control activities to reduce the spread of mosquito-borne diseases, and the effects of human behavioural response to the risk of epidemics.
