Dr Jess Dunn
This person does not currently hold a position at QUT.
Jessica is a Research Fellow in mathematics, statistics and epidemiology at QUT. She recently submitted her Ph.D. in the applied mathematical and statistical epidemiology of the tick-borne disease Human babesiosis, at RMIT University in Melbourne. She had been working on multi-host, multi-pathogen mechanistic models of emergence as part of a joint NIH grant with the Yale University School of Population Health before joining QUT to work on modelling drug resistant malaria emergence in 2014. She has spent time working in various fields with publications in the applied mathematical modelling of integrated catchment management systems and appropriate responses to nutrient loading from agriculture, management of wildlife in African game reserves and fish response management to suspended sediment. Her current research interests lie in integrate mathematical modeling and statistical data analysis for disease dynamics to inform best management practices. She is currently working on theoretical modelling of the emergence of drug resistant malaria.
