Richard G White (BSc, MSc, PhD)
Richard G White (BSc, MSc, PhD) is Senior Lecturer in Infectious Disease Modelling in the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He was awarded a PhD in infectious disease modelling in 2006, led the establishment of the LSHTM Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases in 2007 (now headed by John Edmunds), and was awarded a Methodology Research Fellowship from the Medical Research Council in 2009. Dr White’s research focus is the mathematical and statistical modelling of the transmission and control of infectious diseases, particularly HIV and TB. He is currently principal investigator of three research grants: “Improving tuberculosis control in Africa: mathematical modeling of Consortium to Respond Effectively to the AIDS/TB Epidemic (CREATE)”, “Respondent-Driven Sampling: empirical evaluation and methodological development”, and “Calibration and analysis of complex models: methodological development and application to impact of ART in Africa”. He has co-authored over 45 peer-reviewed scientific publications, and remains committed to fostering the next generation of modellers: co-authoring an introductory modelling book “An Introduction to Infectious Disease Modelling" published by Oxford University Press, and co-organising and teaching on two infectious disease modelling courses each year.
