Romain Ragonnet

PhD Student


Romain Ragonnet is a mathematician working on tuberculosis modelling.

Originally from France, Romain has worked at the INSERM institute of Paris, investigating the dynamics of the spontaneous clearance of the hepatitis C virus in HIV-HCV co-infected individuals.

In 2014, he worked as a research assistant at the Burnet Institute where his main project was a comparison between real and apparent impacts of vaccines against endemic infections.

In 2015, Romain was the principal investigator on a project supported by the TB Modelling and Analysis Consortium (TB-MAC), studying the impact of tuberculosis incidence on the effectiveness of the isoniazid preventive therapy (IPT).

He started a PhD with the University of Melbourne in November 2015, studying the impact of the degree of granularity that is used when modelling tuberculosis for assessing interventions effectiveness.
