Research Associate in Mathematical Modelling of schistosomiasis.

Gregory has a BSc in Biology from the University of Bath, an MSc in the Control of Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and a PhD in the Epidemiology and Public Health Burden of Toxoplasmosis from The Royal Veterinary College.

Gregory's past research focussed on using statistical tools and mathematical models to shed light on the transmission dynamics and epidemiology of toxoplasmosis. His current research focus (as part of the FibroScHot project; is to develop and use mathematical models to obtain policy-relevant insights into the determinants of morbidity associated with schistosomiasis; a neglected tropical disease (NTD) caused by parasitic worms in the genus Schistosoma.
