Jodie McVernon's Profile Picture
Prof

Jodie McVernon

 

Jodie McVernon is a Monash University Medical Graduate with subspecialty training in Paediatrics, Public Health and Vaccinology. She has extensive expertise in clinical vaccine trials, epidemiologic studies and mathematical modelling of infectious diseases, gained at the University of Oxford, Health Protection Agency London and University of Melbourne.

She is Professor and Director of Doherty Epidemiology at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity, and heads the Modelling and Simulation Group within the Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. Her research group uses mathematical and computational models to synthesise insights gained from basic biology, epidemiological data and sociological research. These models advance understanding of the observed epidemiology of influenza and other infections in populations and inform predictions of the likely success of interventions to limit transmission and disease.
