Dr Andrea Mann
Distance Learning Tutor
for DL Msc Epidemiology
I have a BSc in Life Sciences from Queen's University, Canada, and both an MSc and a PhD in Epidemiology from the LSHTM. For my PhD, I analysed seasonal influenza in England & Wales using complex statistical models. Afterwards 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 Public Health England.
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.
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 co-Course Director for the MSc Veterinary Epidemiology (maternity cover). I am on a career break from research, working part-time as a distance learning tutor and raising my young daughters.
