Andrew Brouwer is a research investigator in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Michigan. He received his BA in mathematics and chemistry and MA in mathematics from the SUNY College at Potsdam (2009) and his MS in environmental science and engineering from Clarkson University (2011), where he lectured briefly in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Andrew also earned his MS in applied and interdisciplinary mathematics (2013), MA in statistics (2015), and PhD in applied and interdisciplinary mathematics (2015) at the University of Michigan. He was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Epidemiology at the University of Michigan for a year and a half before joining their faculty as a research investigator.
Andrew’s research is in mathematical and statistical modeling for biology and public health, particularly models of infectious disease and cancer. Specifically, Andrew has considered models of human papillomavirus (HPV) transmission and HPV-related cancers and how to integrate experimental data for pathogen decay and dose-response relationships into environmentally mediated infectious disease transmission models. Considerations of parameter identifiability and estimation are an underlying theme in Andrew’s work.
