Quantitative methodologies in the control of infections - Helen Stagg

Dr. Helen Stagg is a Chancellor’s Fellow at the University of Edinburgh and Tuberculosis Lead for the Usher Institute of Population Health Sciences and Informatics.

Dr. Stagg is an epidemiologist who initially trained at the University of Cambridge in the life sciences and later at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). In addition to her Edinburgh post, she also holds an Honorary Senior Lectureship at University College London (UCL) and an Honorary Associate Professorship at LSHTM.

Dr. Stagg’s group is focussed on applying different quantitative methodology frameworks (epidemiology, statistics, pharmacological modelling, mathematical modelling, bioinformatics) to provide a scientific evidence base to unanswered or neglected questions in infectious disease epidemiology.
