Mr Alexis Robert
I am a mathematical modeller in epidemiology, I joined the school in September 2016. My work focuses on developing models to understand the mechanisms responsible of disease spread in diverse settings.
I completed a Master’s degrees in Bioinformatics and Modelling from INSA de Lyon and in Public Health from Lyon 1 University in 2016. I previously work in the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Disease Team at with Pasteur Institute.
I am currently affiliated with the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases at the London School and funded by the Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
Currently, my project aims to analyse vaccine trial data from the Ebola ring vaccine Trial in Guinea. I am then using epidemiological chains of transmission to analyse transmission routes of Ebola Virus Disease, and assessing the importance of healthcare worker to community and intra community transmissions.
My work also includes modelling analysis of previous Ebola outbreaks in sub-Saharan Africa in order to disentangle the role of healthcare workers in the transmission dynamics.
