Jeff Eaton (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/jeffrey.eaton) and I are
looking to hire a postdoc to help us model HIV in sub-Saharan Africa.
There’s a lot of potential for stats and ML methods to bring about real
advances in this area, and the potential projects are positioned to
have a large and immediate impact:
New geostatistical models for spatio-temporal inference about HIV
incidence in sub-Saharan Africa.
Developing statistical and mathematical models for combining
administrative health system data and population survey data to
understand HIV patterns and trends.
Validating approaches for utilizing HIV case surveillance data for
epidemic estimation in sub-Saharan Africa.
Modelling and analysis of novel HIV surveillance strategies
leveraging biomarkers for recent HIV infection and optimal design for
new surveillance platforms.
Analysis of HIV epidemic trends and transmission dynamics in general
population HIV cohort studies.
