Modelling bacterial drug resistance
Antibiotic resistance is one of today's major global health problems. Mathematical models help us answer what if questions and evaluate the impact of specific interventions such as hands hygiene on the spread of bacterial drug resistance. Effective solutions are then translated into policy changes or changes in practice at national or international level.
Professor of Epidemiology
Ben Cooper's work uses mathematical and statistical modelling, observational studies and clinical trials to help understand the burden and dynamics of infectious diseases and evaluate potential control measures. His current work focuses on drug-resistant infections and emerging pathogens. He leads the Drug-Resistant Infection and Disease Dynamics group (DRIaDD).
