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 control and elimination strategies for neglected tropical diseases. Previously she has worked on the evolution of antimicrobial resistance and evaluating strategies to reduce the risk of resistance development to novel antimicrobials. She has worked on diverse topics including projects on clinical trial simulators for novel immunotherapies for influenza and Alzheimer’s disease, environmental risk mapping of infectious diseases, modelling to improve resourcing of obstetric care facilities, screening strategies for latent tuberculosis infection in people living with HIV, identifying biomarkers for type II diabetes, vaccine development for pneumococcal diseases, molecular diagnostics for antimicrobial resistance and the eco-evoluationary dynamics of anthelminthic resistance in humans and animals.

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.
