I am part of the Chicas Research Group in the Medical School, working mostly on the application of spatial statistics to disease epidemiology and mapping problems.

Research Interests

  • Spatial Statistics Software Development
  • Open Source Geospatial Software
  • Epidemiology

Current Teaching

I teach the Geospatial Data module for the MRes in Global Health. This introduces the concepts of Geographic Information Systems with practical examples in R and QGIS.

I do a small amount of undergraduate teaching on modelling of disease outbreaks.

I've also created an online course
on Spatial Statistics in R together with DataCamp, an interactive platform
to learn R and data science.
