Mr Sean Cavany

MSci PGCE

Research Degree Student
in Infectious Disease Modelling

Sean M. Cavany is an MPhil/PhD candidate in infectious disease modelling, focussing on TB. His research centres around optimising contact tracing protocols for tuberculosis control in England, seeking to analyse TB surveillance data and use mathematical modelling to understand the impact of contact tracing upon TB transmission. He is a member of the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases, the TB Centre, the TB modelling group and the Modelling and Economics Unit at Public Health England.

Sean was awarded an MSci in Mathematics from Imperial College London in 2008. He then trained as a mathematics teacher, and taught mathematics to secondary school and sixth form students (ages 11-18) for a number of years. Prior to beginning his PhD, he worked on a collaborative project between the Met Office and Public Health England to develop a heat wave and cold weather forecasting and alerts system.
