Network Structure and Disease Transmission

AIDS networkNetworks are a powerful tool for conceptualising the potential interactions within a population that can lead to the spread of infection. Networks allow us to capture three important aspects of the interactions that lead to transmission (i) frequent interaction with a few individuals within a large population (ii) large variations (between individuals) in their number of contacts (iii) clustered nature of contacts -- such that networks form cliques.

Four different network approaches and applications are studied at Warwick:

Funded by BBSRC, DTI/HO, EPSRC, EU, NIH, Leverhulme, Wellcome.
