Dr Timothy Pollington
MSc MSc AMIMA
Postdoctoral Researcher - Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases
I'm working with Professor Déirdre Hollingsworth and the Neglected Tropical Disease Modelling Consortium. My main disease of focus is visceral leishmaniasis (VL), a sandfly-transmitted parasitic disease that can be fatal if not treated. I am currently completing my PhD studies at the University of Warwick under Lloyd Chapman, Mike Tildesley & Déirdre Hollingsworth.
My current projects include: simulating outbreaks of VL at the village level; deconvolution of observed time series; an interrupted time series analysis of VL at the district level; developing a rate estimator for the tau statistic - a spatiotemporal clustering statistic for infectious diseases.
