Roy Anderson- Curriculum Vitae#


Sir Roy M. Anderson, born in 1947 in the UK, is Professor of infectious disease epidemiology at Imperial College London. He pioneered the mathematical modeling and population level study of the spread, evolution and control of infectious diseases of humans and animals. He introduced new concepts on the evolutionary consequences of host pathogen interactions. His modeling of the control of infectious diseases has been highly influential throughout the world in important public health problems posed by the major emerging diseases since the 1980's.
