Dr Andrea Mann MSc PhD

Distance Learning Tutor MSc Epidemiology by Distance Learning

Background

I have a BSc in Life Sciences from Queen's University, Canada, and both an MSc and a PhD in Epidemiology from the LSHTM. During my PhD, I analysed seasonal influenza in England & Wales using complex statistical models. After my PhD I worked on a variety of projects, mostly malaria-related. In the past I have worked on meta-analysis and risk factors for heart disease at the University of Cambridge and on the epidemiology of hepatitis C at the Health Protection Agency, Centre for Infections (UK).

Teaching

I am a tutor on the MSc Epidemiology by distance learning. I teach on modules related to the control of communicable diseases and advanced statistics.

Research

For my PhD I investigated the impact of antigenic drift and of vaccination of the elderly on incidence of general practice consultations for influenza-like illness and deaths due to pneumonia and influenza in England & Wales.

More recently, I provided epidemiological and statistical support to several malaria-related projects. These included an evaluation of the Global Fund initiative to increase market share of quality assured antimalarials in several low income countries (the Affordable Medicines Facility - malaria, or AMFm).

During the academic year 2015/16 I was the Course Director for the MSc Veterinary Epidemiology (maternity cover). At present I am working as a distance learning tutor part-time while raising my young daughters.
