Angela McLean

Professor of Mathematical Biology

Fellow of All Souls College


Research Interests

My research interests lie in the use of mathematical models to aid our understanding of the evolution and spread of infectious agents. This encompasses modelling of the dynamics of infections and immune responses within individual hosts as well as models of the spread of infections from one host to another. My group's current research interests focus on:

  • HIV
  • HCV
  • Influena
  • Scrapie

My colleagues and I currently receive funding from the James Martin 21st Century School and I am Director of The Institute for Emergent Infections of Humans.
