Research title: Metapopulations and infectious disease dynamics

Research Summary

Research Summary

My PhD project focuses on developing mathematical methods to explore the transmission and evolution of canine rabies in Tanzania. The first chapter of my thesis aims to elucidate whether rabies' long latent periods violate the molecular clock model, and whether there is a better way of measuring RABV evolution. Future planned chapters include predicting viral lineage emergence rates and outbreak sizes.
