People Professor Angela McLean FRS

Co-Director, Oxford Martin Programme on Collective Responsibility for Infectious Disease


Professor of Mathematical Biology

Research interests lie in the use of mathematical models to aid our understanding of the evolution and spread of infectious agents. This encompasses modelling of the dynamics of infections and immune responses within individual hosts as well as models of the spread of infections from one host to another.

Professor McLean is Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford and Fellow of the Royal Society.
