Rob Moss

 

Dr Rob Moss is a Research Fellow in the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, The University of Melbourne. He is a postdoctoral member of the PRISM^2 NHMRC CRE, and collaborator in the public health pillar of the APPRISE NHMRC CRE.

He was awarded an APPRISE Research Fellowship for 2020-2021.

His research focus is on the development and application of methods for predicting and mitigating the burden of seasonal and pandemic influenza. This includes the use of scenario modelling to inform recommendations for specific interventions, such as targeted antiviral distribution, and synthesising disease models and surveillance data to provide near-real-time epidemic forecasts. He collaborates with public health staff across Australia, and is also a member of the WHO Influenza Incidence Analytics Group (IIAG), where he leads the Australian and regional discussions.

In addition to these research interests, he is actively interested in broader issues related to model-driven science, including the dissemination of models (including source code, parameter sets, analysis scripts, etc), and effective communication of research outputs through the use of visualisations.
