Mr Joshua Lambert

Research Software Engineer

United Kingdom

I am a Research Software Engineer working in the Epiverse-TRACE initiative (within CMMID). My work primarily involves developing R packages to enable epidemiologists to conduct reliable and robust analysis on disease outbreak data.

My background is in evolutionary biology and from 2019-2023 I did my PhD at the University of Groningen.


Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology and Dynamics
Faculty of Epidemiology and Population Health


As a Research Software Engineer I do not have a teaching component in my role at LSHTM. However, I have taught on a variety of topics to date, from evolutionary biology and ecology, to mathematical modelling, to software development including developing R packages.


My interests are in developing intuitive software for the study of infectious disease dynamics.
