Aim: This Mentoring Scheme aims to foster a healthy academic and scientific culture. This can be achieved through both vertical and peer-to-peer learning amongst the broader Melbourne Mathematical Biology Community, while striving to ensure that everyone within our community can grow through providing collaborative opportunities. Ideally, the mentees will gain confidence, different perspectives, knowledge, and […]
Kartik is an MPhil student at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne, pursuing research under the supervision of Prof. James McCaw and Prof. Jennifer Flegg. His research involves working with Bayesian Hierarchical models for stochastic epidemics.
Jiahao is a Research Fellow in Infectious disease dynamics at the school of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne. His current work is focus on developing mathematical and computational models of infectious diseases that link immunological and epidemiological scales of infection and transmission.

Isobel is a PhD student in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne under the supervision of Dr Christopher Baker, Prof James McCaw, Prof Jennifer Flegg and Dr Thao Le. Her work focuses on using infectious disease modelling in a decision-making context.
Yang is a PhD student at the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne, working under the supervision of Dr Freya Shearer, Dr David Price and Prof James McCaw. His research focuses on exploring the feasibility of epidemic control within a stochastic model framework by accounting for resource constraints, delays in the […]
In 2021, the Society for Mathematical Biology will be holding its annual meeting online. This year, three of our members within the Melbourne Mathematical Biology (MMB) group have organised a mini-symposia (details below), which are being supported by the Special Emphasis Year, “Biological Dynamics: Mathematics of Cellular Systems to Epidemics“. Date: June 13 – 17, […]
