Speaker:


Alexandra Richards, Research Fellow at London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Alex is a research fellow at LSHTM in the TB modelling group. She recently submitted her PhD thesis which combined historical and contemporary data through modelling to improve understanding of the natural history of TB.


Expert panel:


Torben Heinsohn, Research Fellow, Clinical Epidemiology, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research

During his medical studies in Cambridge and Oxford, Torben Heinsohn starting his research into TB and HIV and worked on community health worker systems in Tanzania. He co-founded Kite Oxford, an NGO working on education and women’s health in Kenya. After working as a clinician during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, he joined the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research as a Clinical Epidemiologist working on infectious diseases including TB, HIV, SARS-CoV-2 and viral haemorrhagic fevers. His doctoral work focusses on subclinical TB in people living with HIV.


Wolfgang Bock, PhD, Senior Lecturer, Department of Mathematics, Technical University of Kaiserslauten

Wolfgang Bock is a senior lecturer (Akademischer Rat) at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern, Germany and visiting professor at MSU-IIT, Iligan, Philippines. His work has centered around Mathematical Physics, Stochastics and Complex Systems, particularly in the field on non-local dynamics.

He is part of the MOCOS international research group for the modelling of the spread of COVID-19 in Germany, Poland and the Philippines. In Mathematical Biology his contributions are in the field of the impact of human mobility to the spread of diseases. Currently he is working in modelling TB in Philippines, in particular including stigma and exogeneous reinfection.


Chaired by:


Berit Lange, MD MSc, Head Clinical Epidemiology, Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research

Berit Lange is an infectious disease epidemiologist. She leads a research group in Clinical Epidemiology at the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Germany. Her group does evidence synthesis, population and hospital based studies and dynamic modelling.
