  • Postdoctoral Fellow

Alex is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the H-TEAM, using phylogenetic methods, mathematical modelling and geospatial mapping to better understand transmission dynamics of HIV in Amsterdam. The project aims to estimate how many new infections are being acquired locally in the city, to characterise sources of new infections, and to identify any transmission hotspots within Amsterdam. The findings will be used to inform test and treat strategies and thus limit onward spread. Alex holds a Masters in Medical Statistics (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine), and a PhD in statistical methods for adaptive clinical trial design (UCL).
