This week’s seminar will feature presentations from Tess Ryckman, PhD & Alex Richards, PhD.
“Quantifying progression and regression across the spectrum of pulmonary tuberculosis”
Alex Richards, PhD
London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
Alex Richards is a research fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She completed a PhD in mathematical modelling of tuberculosis, aiming to understand the natural history of tuberculosis infection and disease through the use of historical and contemporary literature. Her current research includes using modelling to further understand the natural history of disease, the effects of treatment and the impact of gendered differences in TB.
“Infectious & clinical TB trajectories: Bayesian modeling with case finding implications”
Tess Ryckman, PhD
Instructor, Division of Infectious Disease
Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Tess’s research includes the use of mathematical modeling, economic evaluation, and policy analysis to inform infectious disease programs and policies and shed light on disease natural history and transmission. She is primarily focused on tuberculosis epidemiology and policy and has a particular interest in prevention and active case finding interventions.
The October TRAC Seminar Series on “Computational Models in TB” is presented by the Bioinformatics, Modeling & Biostatistics Core.
