Dr Kelly Sutton
This person does not currently hold a position at QUT.
Kelly has a background in Applied Mathematics, completing her undergraduate and honours degrees at QUT. After completing a Marie Curie Early Stage Research Training Fellowship at the University of Nottingham, she then joined the Kirby Institute (formerly the National Centre for HIV Epidemiology and Clinical Research) at the University of New South Wales to complete her PhD specialising in the mathematical modelling of sexually transmitted infections. She has also worked in the United Kingdom, Cambodia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
Through her work with governmental health departments both nationally and internationally, and global organisations including the World Bank, UNAIDS and the Global Fund, she has developed an interest in the evaluation of the implementation in terms of mitigating the spread of an epidemic and cost-effectiveness.
- Mathematical modelling of infectious diseases and within-host and population levels
Kelly is currently working a multi-country retrospective analysis of HIV epidemics in Sub-Saharan Africa on behalf of the World Bank. She is also collaborating with colleagues in the UK on the modelling of a spray to assist in wound-healing and is a member of IHBI where she is involved in looking at the spread of MRSA between the community and hospitals in Australia.
