Dr

Jennifer Flegg

 

I'm an Associate Professor in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne. My research focuses on mathematical biology in areas such as wound healing, tumour growth and infectious disease epidemiology.

I was awarded a PhD in 2009 from Queensland University of Technology on "Mathematical modelling of chronic wound healing". From 2010 - 2013, I was at the University of Oxford developing mathematical models for the spread of resistance to antimalarial drugs. From 2014 - April 2017 I was a Lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Monash University. In May 2017 I joined the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne as a Senior Lecturer in Applied Mathematics and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2020. In 2016 I started a Discovery Early Career Research Award to study and mathematically model venous leg ulcers.
