Dr Ed Hill

Job Title
Warwick Zeeman Lecturer
Research Interests

I am a post-doctoral researcher working in the Mathematics Institute, and a member of the
Zeeman Institute:Systems Biology & Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research SBIDER) group
I am working with Mike Tildesley and Matt Keeling on modelling the spread of disease (further details below), as well as collaborating with other members of the Life Sciences, Mathematics and Medical School departments.

My research interests include the application of mathematical and computational methods in epidemiology, and analysis to determine the likelihood of spread of infectious diseases and social contagion. My current work is seeking to elucidate the differences between national-level and farmer-level optimisation of controls, investigated via the use of mathematical models that combine disease spread and farmer behaviour.

Areas of expertise:

  • Mathematical modelling of infectious diseases
  • Control of infectious diseases
  • Model fitting and parameter estimation
