Dr Alicia Rosello
BSc MPH PhD
Prior to joining the School, I worked at Public Health England as an infectious disease modeller, analysing the cost-effectiveness of herpes zoster vaccination. I obtained my PhD from UCL where I used statistical and mathematical modelling techniques to study the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistant Gram-negative bacteria in care homes.
My research focus is modelling interventions against emerging infectious diseases. Currently my work is centered on COVID-19, particularly in the care home population. I have also worked on various aspects of the Ebola 2014-2015 and 2018-2020 outbreaks, including modelling of vaccination strategies and using expert elicitation to forecast geographic disease spread. At present I am funded by an NIHR grant "Vaccine Efficacy Evaluation for Priority Emerging Diseases" (VEEPED).
