Research degree students and postdocs

Dominic Thorrington

I am a mathematical modeller and health economist at Public Health England focusing on examining ways to reduce the burden of both influenza and pneumococcal disease in the elderly population of many EU countries. I use both dynamic and static models to estimate disease burden before conducting cost-effectiveness analyses to consider the costs and benefits of modifications to existing vaccination programmes. My research is funded by the I-MOVE+ project, commissioned by the EU H2020 programme.
Nicholas Davies

David Hodgson

I am a PhD student at the Center of Mathematics, Physics and Engineering in the Life Sceinces and Experienmental Biology (CoMPLEX) at University College London (UCL). My research is focused on modelling the impact and cost-effectiveness of RSV vaccinatoin in England and I am supervised by Katie Atkins (LSHTM), Marc Baguelin (PHE) and Jasmina Panovska-Giffiths.
I am funded by the Medical Research Council and an Honorary Affiliate at Public Health England and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Previous to my PhD, I studied for a Matheamtics BSc at UCL, then a MSci in Biophysical Sciences at Durham University.
Diana Mendes

I am a PhD candidate supervised by Mark Jit and Marc Baguelin at the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at LSHTM and the Modelling and Economics Unit at Public Health England.
My PhD focuses on modelling HPV infection and cervical cancer progression to analyse the impact and cost-effectiveness of alternative cervical screening strategies in Portugal.
I am currently funded by the Foundation for Science and Technology Portugal (FCT). Before starting my PhD, I worked for the Southampton Health Technology Assessments Centre on cost-effectiveness evaluations of medical interventions to inform NICE’s recommendations on their use within the NHS.
James Munday

I am a PhD student in Mathematical Epidemiology at LSHTM interested in the relationship between vaccination and health equity. My research uses infectious disease transmission models to study the dynamic effects of vaccination on various measures of health equity. My particular focus concerns how variation in community level contact networks, segregation, susceptibility and vaccine uptake may influence these dynamics.
I am supervised by Albert-Jan VanHoek and Katie Atkins and my funding comes from the National Institute of Health Research as part of the Health Protection Research Unit in Immunisation.
Frank Sandman

I am a PhD candidate at LSHTM and who is also affiliated with the Modelling and Economics Unit at Public Health England (PHE). My doctoral research focusses on the true cost of epidemic and outbreak diseases in hospitals, illustrated with Norovirus-associated gastroenteritis.
I specialised in health economics at the Erasmus University Rotterdam (NL) after graduating in health sciences from the University of Twente (NL). Before starting the PhD, I worked at the German Institute for Quality and Efficiency in Health Care (IQWiG).
