John is a research degree student presently researching the application of model-based drug decision methods to vaccine dose optimisation. He is mainly focused on the use of statistical models of dose-efficacy and dose-safety, multi-objective optimisation, and adaptive trial design.

 

Further areas of interest include:

  • Non-parametric models
  • Bandit algorithms and reinforcement learning.
  • Non-linear equation modelling
  • Metaheuristic and genetic algorithms for optimisation.
