Senior Scientific Software Developer

MAEMOD

I am currently a senior scientific software developer at Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU) in Bangkok, Thailand. I joined MORU as a mathematical modeller in 2007 and did my PhD here through the affiliated research centre programme with the Open University. My main work, as software developer, is to help the researchers at Mathematical and Economic Modelling (MAEMOD) department of MORU write better and efficient code using the best hardware and software tools we have available.

My current research is primarily focussed on the within-host modelling of malaria infection. I am interested in the dynamics of Plasmodium falciparum parasites in malaria infected patients and in the absence and presence of an antimalarial drug.
