Phillip Luong

Mathematical Modeller


Phillip originally started working at the Burnet in the summer of 2015-16 on some holiday research projects during his undergraduate degree building compartmental models and agent-based models for diseases such as hepatitis C, syphilis, and tuberculosis.

After completing his degrees in Biomedical Science and Science (majors in Applied Mathematics and Statistics), he has returned to the Burnet as a Mathematical Modeller and is currently involved in building and calibrating models to measure the health and financial impacts of novel products targeting typhoid, and developing transmission models for hepatitis B.
