An overview of lessons from real-time COVID-19 modelling and analytics, and how we can generate better data-driven pandemic insights in future.
Adam Kucharski is a Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Sir Henry Dale at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. His research focuses on understanding how social behaviour and immunity shape the dynamics of infectious disease outbreaks, and how knowledge of such processes can improve preparedness and response. He has worked on outbreaks including Ebola, dengue, Zika, influenza and COVID-19, contributing real-time analysis to multiple governments and health agencies. From 2013–17 he held a Medical Research Council Career Development Award in Biostatistics, and prior to joining LSHTM he was a research associate at Imperial College London. He has an MMath in Mathematics from the University of Warwick (2009) and a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Cambridge (2012).
