University Lecturer in Epidemiology
Andrew Conlan is interested in taking PhD students.
Andrew Conlan is available for consultancy.
Andrew Conlan is based in the Disease Dynamics Unit (DDU) at the Department of Veterinary Medicine in Cambridge.
Andrew obtained a MPhys degree in Mathematical Physics from the University of Edinburgh before moving to the Department of Zoology in Cambridge in 2002 to undertake a PhD with Bryan Grenfell. He has remained in Cambridge since then, furthering his research on disease dynamics in the Department of Applied Mathematics (DAMTP) and the Department of Veterinary Medicine. His research has focused on understanding the stochastic persistence of infectious diseases, ranging from childhood infectious diseases, to bacterial infections in livestock. He has particular interests in measles, pertussis, scarlet fever, diptheria, campylobacter and bovine tuberculosis.
