Associate Professor, Monash University

I am a practising respiratory, sleep, general and public health physician - and head of the Epidemiological Modelling Unit for the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University. From early 2020 I moved from a primary research interest in TB to focus on the COVID-19 pandemic. My Unit employs methodological approaches that include deterministic and stochastic modelling, agent-based simulations, Bayesian inference, epidemiology and software engineering.

We have undertaken a range of infectious diseases simulations for policy for funding organisations including the World Health Organization, the Victorian Department of Health and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria. I collaborate closely with researchers at James Cook University, through our modelling platform to assist low-income countries of the Asia-Pacific to better understand and fight infectious diseases epidemics (the Australian Tuberculosis Modelling Network or AuTuMN).
