Biography

In my current role as Leckie Research Fellow, I am working on a range of projects spanning ecosystem health and infectious disease epidemiology. I have a particular interest in using mathematical and computational models to understand dynamic problems. For example, my recent work covers the dynamics of biodiversity and the dynamics of infectious disease dynamics over both the short term and the very long term. I also work with social scientists on projects to understand the origins of inequalities in income, wealth and health, working both with traditional societies (e.g. pastoralists) and historical archive data. In most of my work I use secondary datasets, but also have experience of primary data collection, for example, from historical archives and large-scale surveys. To synthesise my research in the context of my Fellowship, I am also working on a literature review to answer the question “Can urbanisation generate benefits for both human and ecosystem health?”

 

Prior to my current role, I worked as a computational ecologist on canine rabies modelling, working with Katie Hampson, following on from a (second) PhD in Computing Science, focused on using simulation modelling approaches to understand the properties of stochastic versions of classical metapopulation models used in ecology. My first degree was in mathematics from the University of Warwick, and I have worked as a professional software developer in Geneva, Switzerland. I also have a part-time role as Senior Lecturer in Education, with interests in science education, the area of my first PhD.

 

I have received funding from bodies such as EPSRC and ESRC and have extensive Masters and PhD supervision experience across my different areas of expertise.

Research interests

My research focuses on questions in Ecosystem Health/ Planetary Health and One Health/ Health Inequalities, with a particular interest in the dynamics of ecological processes and infectious diseases. I use computational and mathematical modelling of ecological and epidemiological processes in time. I describe some of my recent and ongoing work below.

  1. Urbanisation and its effects on human and ecosystem health. I am currently working with Davide Dominoni, Jason Matthiopoulos and Sofie Spatharis and PhD student Yacob Haddou (see PhD students below) on questions relating to urbanisation and its impacts on avian biodiversity, with a particular emphasis on the role of lags in the response of biodiversity to land use changes. I am also working on a review of the impacts of urbanisation on human and ecosystem health, working with Dan Haydon and Rich Mitchell.
  2. Infectious diseases and health inequalities over the long term. I have published recently on the dynamics of recurrent outbreaks following historical influenza pandemics since 1838 and the role of prior local smallpox epidemics on vaccination refusal. I am currently working on understanding differences in the timing of the epidemiological transition between small areas of cities. This work uses historical archive data and computational, mathematical and statistical modelling, and is in collaboration with Konstantinos Angelopoulos, Spyridon Lazarakis (Lancaster University) and Max Schroeder (University of Birmingham).
  3. The origins of inequalities in health, wealth, and income. In collaboration with colleagues in social sciences, I have been working on projects that aim to understand the root causes of inequalities. We have been working with the NGO Friends of Lake Turkana and Turkana pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya to analyse data we have collected to understand the importance of livestock and human health risk for inequalities. This work is in collaboration with Konstantinos AngelopoulosSpyridon Lazarakis (Lancaster University) and Dorice Agol (LSE). With Konstantinos and two co-supervised PhD students (Gill Stewart and Siqi Qiao - see PhD students below), we are also working with archive data from Glasgow and Nancy (France), in collaboration with colleagues at Glasgow City Archives and the Archives municipales de Nancy to understand the drivers of mortality differentials and the impacts of mortality for inequality in the period prior to the welfare state.
  4. Heterogeneities in pathogen transmission and infectious disease dynamics. My recent work with Katie Hampson and published in Science demonstrated how canine rabies persists at low prevalence, partially due to heterogeneities in transmission. I am currently working with Ed Hill, Matt Keeling and PhD student Phoebe Asplin at the University of Warwick on understanding the epidemiological implications of ‘symptom propagation’, according to which symptom sets tend to propagate alongside pathogen transmission.

Additional information

In addition to my Fellowship, I have a part-time appointment as Senior Lecturer in the School of Education, where I am Course Leader of Fundamentals of Formal Education. I also teach on Seminar in Contemporary Issues in Education, a course that I previously led. Both are compulsory courses of the MSc/MEd in Educational Studies. I also extensive experience of PhD supervision in this this role.

I have recently been involved in community engagement and impact work in Turkana, Kenya. For example, we have developed an educational/community engagement booklet based on the findings from our research, which has been contributing to community debates and supporting a culture of reading in this resource-poor setting.
