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.
Key research interests:
- Infectious disease modelling (Neglected Tropical Diseases)
- Public health modelling (Maternal, Newborn and Child Health)
- Decision science using Optima
- Allocative efficiency in child nutrition
- Strategies to reduce malnutrition with allocative efficiency analyses
