Professor Christophe Fraser
I lead the evolutionary epidemiology group, which works on developing theory, on integrating data, and on developing applications for public health.
Chair of Theoretical Epidemiology (since 2009) and Royal Society University Research Fellow (2004-2012) in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College. Previous to that I was a Lecturer (2004-2006) and Reader (2006-2009) in the same department. Full publication list.
I trained in theoretical physics (BSc Edinburgh 1994, PhD Swansea 1997), and after a very brief foray into M-theory, converted to epidemiology with a Wellcome Trust Biomathematics Training Fellowship (Oxford University and Imperial College, 1999-2002).
I am the deputy director of the MRC Centre for Outbreak Analysis and Modelling. I co-direct a two week Short Course in Infectious Disease Modelling held each September and teach on and help organise our other taught courses.
