Robin Thompson

I am an Associate Professor of Mathematical Epidemiology in the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford, and a Tutorial Fellow in Applied Mathematics at St Hilda's College. This website contains some information about my research and teaching.
My research involves developing mathematical models of infectious disease outbreaks. This includes using statistical methods to estimate the parameters associated with pathogen transmission, and using the stochastic and deterministic models that I develop to generate forward projections. The main aims are not only to generate forecasts of specific outbreaks, but also to understand general outbreak dynamics so that forecasts can be made and control interventions can be planned with more precision.
