Ensemble modelling for timely and responsive COVID-19 epidemic tracking in the UK: the process and lessons learned for future outbreak preparedness

Dr Jasmina Panovska-Griffiths is a Lecturer in Probability and Statistics at The Queen’s College and a Senior Research Fellow at the Pandemic Sciences Institute at University of Oxford. She has mathematics and statistics background and a track record in modelling infectious diseases including HIV, measles, seasonal and pandemic influenza and more recently COVID-19. Her multidisciplinary group, across the Pandemic Sciences Institute at University of Oxford and the UK Health Security Agency, uses mathematical and statistical modelling to inform policy with a focus on outbreak analyses, pandemic preparedness and evaluation of different immunisation policies.
