Dr Rein Houben
in Infectious Disease Epidemiology
I have taught on a wide variety of courses in the In House and Distance Learning MSc Epidemiology. My organisational responsibilities have included EPM103: Practical Epidemiology (where I still run the Virtual Ethics Committee) and EPM302: Modelling and Dynamics of Infectious Diseases. Currently I am a module co-organiser for EP202: Statistical Methods in Epidemiology
My main research focus is creating mathematical models that can inform TB policy and enable capacity building. I lead the development and implementation of TIME, a widely used TB modelling tool. I also work on models to improve our understanding of burden and treatment of latent TB infection as well as social determinants of TB.
