Project summary

Marga's research aims to better understand the spread of infectious diseases. During her Fellowship, she will focus on identifying the determinants of the epidemic dynamics of human enterovirus diseases. This will involve the use of mathematical and statistical models to analyse epidemiological, microbiological, and viral sequence data collected as part of enterovirus surveillance in the UK and the US. Marga will work with Professor Nicholas Grassly at Imperial College London and Professor Bryan Grenfell at Princeton University. Collaborators on this project include Professor Miren Iturriza-Gomara at the University of Liverpool, and researchers at Public Health England and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
