Our Research Program

Our overarching aim is to develop epidemiological models that capture infectious disease dynamics and allow us to assess their effects on health systems and evaluate the impact of control strategies. Our research informs:

  • Epidemiological understanding of the drivers of disease distribution across populations
  • Disease forecasting methods for communicable diseases
  • Health policy development – both by assisting health policy makers to devise optimal health control strategies, and by providing lobby and advocacy groups and interested individuals with relevant evidence
  • The use of evidence-based information to understand the real-world effectiveness of health interventions and public health strategies
  • Community understanding of disease epidemiology, and the effect of behaviours or interventions on transmission and risk of severe disease outcomes

Our current portfolio comprises:
