Mr Andrew Clark
London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
I am an Associate Professor in Health Decision Modelling based at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), a world-leading centre for research and postgraduate education in public and global health. My research is focused on the development of analytical models to inform decisions about new vaccines. I have developed models for the World Health Organization, GAVI Alliance, Pan American Health Organization and UK Department for International Development (DFID). I have published over 50 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and presented on several occasions to SAGE, the principle advisory committee to the WHO on vaccines. I am the module organiser of the Health Decision Science course, an elective module within the Distance Learning Masters Degree programme at LSHTM. I currently serve on the LSHTM Senate committee and LSHTM Innovation committee.
I am the module organiser of the Health Decision Science course, an elective module within the Distance Learning Masters Degree programme at LSHTM. I also tutor 3 MSc students each year and contribute to marking and exam setting. I am one of the Deputy Chairs of the LSHTM Distance Learning Exam Board, and an external examiner for UCL. I currently supervise three Research Degree students.
My research is focused on the development of analytical models to inform decisions about new vaccines. The models range from simple Excel-based decision-support models through to more complex individual-based simulation models. These models have been used to inform global WHO policy recommendations and to inform national decision-making in over 30 countries worldwide.
