Our work is in applying mathematics to understand infectious disease dynamics, with a particular focus on influenza. Ongoing and recent projects include:

  • The evolutionary dynamics of influenza A in humans.
  • Spatial and temporal patterns for 2009 pandemic influenza in the US.
  • Within-host dynamics of mammalian influenza.
  • Transmission dynamics of avian influenza in birds
  • Detection of packaging signals in influenza genome, and applying these methods to other viruses.
  • The dynamics of innate immunity at the single cell level

Public Science

Infectious diseases and mathematics seems to be an interesting combination for more than just specialist researchers. We are keen to communicate our research area to wider audiences, and recently this has included:

Prof. Julia Gog is head of the Disease Dynamics research group in DAMTP specialising in the mathematics of infectious diseases.

The Disease Dynamics research group is part of Cambridge Infectious Diseases.
