The Team

Greedy Planet is run by Dr Ciara Dangerfield, a Scientist based in the Department of Plant Sciences at the University of Cambridge.

Ciara is a researcher in the Epidemiology and Modelling Group, and works on developing models using techniques from finance to inform disease control strategies. Originally a mathematician, Ciara did a PhD in Oxford developing mathematical models of cardiac cells. She then spent a short spell working at Public Health England, a government organisation, looking at the impact of control measures on Chlamydia in the UK (not the best conversation starter!). In her spare time Ciara enjoys running, baking and running after an unruly toddler!
