Dr Joshua Ross’ research focuses on developing new mathematical and statistical models to give insight into the factors that are important in the spread of diseases. Mathematics and statistics are increasingly a part of the arsenal governments use to combat the spread of infectious diseases. Joshua’s models enable us to better determine the optimal use of control mechanisms, such as drugs or vaccines, in preventing or minimising the threat of future pandemics.
