Carolin is a computational biologist at the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London. Her main interests are stochastic simulation models of complex systems and clinical trial simulations. Currently, she is working with Roy Anderson on modelling the evolution of antimicrobial resistance and evaluating strategies to reduce the risk of resistance development to novel antimicrobials. Previous projects include clinical trial simulators for novel immunotherapies for influenza and Alzheimer’s disease and on identifying biomarkers for type II diabetes. She has also worked on vaccine development for pneumococcal diseases and molecular diagnostics for antimicrobial resistance.

Carolin holds a PhD in Biological Anthropology from the University of Cambridge. Her research interests include quantitative modelling of cultural evolution and the cognitive and social processes involved in innovation.
