Using mathematical modelling to predict virus evolution and inform pandemic response

The dynamic interplay between epidemiological research, virus evolution, and mathematical modelling is skilfully described by Dr Colin Russell, Professor of Applied Evolutionary Biology and ESWI Board Member. Flu was Prof. Russell’s first love, however the complex epidemiological pathways of the COVID-19 pandemic sparked his interest in how mathematical modelling informs pandemic response particularly in LMICs.
