Dr Ben Lambert

Senior Lecturer


I am a mathematician, a statistician and an epidemiologist. My main research interest is in those infectious diseases carried by mosquitoes, such as malaria and dengue fever. I use mathematical models to try to understand how these diseases spread, and I am particularly interested in the mosquito stages of the pathogen life cycle.

  I also have a background in statistical methods, and I am interested in developing methods and software for performing computational inference. I am part of the development team, based mainly at Oxford, which maintains PINTS -- an open-course Python package for performing statistical inference.
