Mr Kevin Van Zandvoort
in Epidemiology and Mathematical Modelling
I completed a BSc in European Public Health at Maastricht University in 2016, and an MSc in Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine in 2017. I have been working in transmission modelling at the School since 2017. In addition, I have worked as a web-developer for multiple years.
I teach on the Epidemiology and Control of Communicable Diseases and Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases distance learning modules.
My work focusses on the evaluation of optimal strategies to deliver pneumococcal vaccines to crisis-affected populations. This is a joint project between LSHTM, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, and the Murdoch's Children Research Institute. I am supervised by Prof Francesco Checchi and Dr Stefan Flasche.
I used to work on vaccine impact modelling with Prof Mark Jit, Andy Clark, Dr Kaja Abbas, and Dr Petra Klepac, to study the impact of vaccine investments by Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, in 96 low and lower-middle income countries. This was part of the broader Vaccine Impact Modelling Consortium.
