Rob is a mathematical biologist/physiologist at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. He uses mathematical models to develop insights into biological systems across a variety of scales, from regulation of water and salt balance by the kidney, to predicting the course of disease epidemics in urban populations and delivering proportionate healthcare responses. He has previously worked in Paris (Université Paris Sud 11 / Institut Gustave Roussy) and North Carolina (Duke University).
