Mr Tim Pollington

Modeller, Epidemiologist
University of Warwick
In September 2016 began a PhD in infectious disease modelling with supervisors Déirdre Hollingsworth & Lloyd Chapman. My MSc summer project spatially modelled visceral leishmaniasis (VL) in Fulbaria, Bangladesh during 2002-10. My PhD will expand on this further to also model the epidemic cycles of VL in the Indian subcontinent. In January 2017 I was awarded a Newton Bhabha PhD placement grant to fund a four-month visit to an Indian research institution later this year. I am particularly keen to work with researchers and their datasets from the Indian subcontinent, so please get in touch.
