Dr Nick Scott, BSc (hons), PhD (Mathematics) is the Head of Modelling & Biostatistics at the Burnet Institute, an Adjunct Senior Research Fellow at Monash University, and an NHMRC Emerging Leader Fellow. He leads a team of modellers who work across a number of infectious diseases and public health problems including:
- Hepatitis C
- Hepatitis B
- Maternal, Newborn and Child health
- Adolescent Health
His work aims to produce evidence to support decision and policy making, and includes epidemic and economic modelling, cost-effectiveness and return on investment analyses, resource optimisation analyses and statistical analyses.
Dr Scott and his team are consultants to the World Bank, Gates Foundation, Global Fund, United Nations Population Fund and the WHO, and are members of international HIV, TB, malaria and nutrition modelling consortiums.
