Dr Adam Kucharski
My research focuses on the dynamics of infectious diseases, particularly emerging infections. This work is funded by an MRC Career Development Award in Biostatistics. Prior to joining the School in October 2013, I was a postdoc at Imperial College London. I have a degree in mathematics from the University of Warwick (2009) and a PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Cambridge (2012).
I am interested in how social behaviour and immunity shape disease transmission, and how knowledge of such processes can enhance surveillance and control measures. My work covers emerging infections – such as monkeypox, Ebola and Zika – as well as established infections like seasonal influenza and dengue fever.
