Dominic’s undergraduate studies were in physics and applied mathematics, and during his postgraduate studies he continued in applied mathematics with a focus on mathematical biology.
His research was on reviewing and developing extensions to mathematical models of macroparasite transmission across human populations.
Since joining Burnet, Dominic has primarily focused on projects in maternal and child health, nutrition, and COVID-19 modelling using the agent-based model, Covasim.
