Ben Singer is a postdoctoral scholar with interests in mathematical epidemiology and global public health. Ben's reasearch career began with an internship at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, where he applied quantitative skills he had learnt studying physics at the University of Oxford to the study of nematode locomotion. Ben further pursued quantitative methods in life sciences in the Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Programme at the University of Oxford, earning a DPhil (PhD equivalent) in mathematical methods for evaluating pandemic risk and control. During these studies he maintained an interest in global public health policy, interning with the UK government's Department for International Development, where he developed models of international COVID-19 vaccine distribution. Ben is now working in Nathan Lo's reasearch group, which is affiliated with the Experimental and Population-based Pathogen Investigation center (EPPIcenter). His current research concerns the effective geographical targeting of mass drug administration campaigns for schistosomiasis.
