Max Eyre

MSc, MEng, PhD


Postdoctoral Infectious Disease Epidemiologist

Max Eyre is a postdoctoral epidemiologist at the Big Data Institute (BDI) and, Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit (CTSU) within the Nuffield Department of Population Health. His research lies at the intersection of epidemiology and spatial statistics, focusing on the environmental, behavioural and ecological drivers of spatial heterogeneity in transmission risk for a range of infectious diseases. 

As a member of the Big Data and Helminth Epidemiology Research Group, Max currently works on the SchistoTrack project, investigating how human mobility influences schistosomiasis epidemiology at fine spatial scales. This research aims to explore how data collected using wearable GPS loggers can be used to identify high-risk water contact sites for Schistosoma mansoni infection. 

Previously, Max completed a PhD in Epidemiology and Statistics at Lancaster University as part of the MRC Doctoral Training Programme with the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Working with partners at Fiocruz and the Federal University of Bahia in Salvador, Brazil, his doctoral research on zoonotic spillover focused on developing a novel geostatistical modelling framework for joint spatiotemporal modelling of human infection risk and animal disease reservoir abundance. These methods were applied to investigate fine-scale spatiotemporal determinants of Leptospira transmission in marginalised urban settings and delineate complex animal-environment-human interactions. Max is also a visiting research fellow within the COVID-19 Virus Watch Study at University College London. 

Max gained an MEng in Engineering at the University of Cambridge in 2014 and an MSc in the Control of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in 2017.
