Research Interests

I am a Senior Medical Entomologist working for the UK Health Security Agency, where I have spent the last decade specialising in vector-borne diseases. I have a particular interesting in tick-borne disease, tick ecology and Borrelia transmission cycles. I coordinate the UKHSA national tick surveillance scheme and lead ecological research studies with the aim of developing a better understanding of Lyme borreliosis transmission risk. I also work closely with various stakeholders to co-develop public health tick awareness information and campaign materials.
