Panayiota Touloupou is a Lecturer in Mathematics and Statistics with interest in applied statistics and in particular on epidemiology.
She is currently working under the Neglected Tropical Disease modelling consortium which is funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This project is a large-scale international, multidisciplinary collaboration between research groups working on neglected tropical diseases. Her aim on the project has been to develop new methods of linking geospatial models of disease prevalence with transmission models of epidemic dynamics in order to make maps of future projections of disease.
In her PhD she developed new inference methods for individual-level multi-strain epidemics with partial observations.
