Dr Jasmina Panovska-Griffiths
  • Senior Research Associate in Applied Stastistics
  • Applied Health Research
  • Institute of Epidemiology & Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

My background is in mathematics having completed by undergraduate (BA), master (MMath) and doctoral (DPhil) studies in applied mathematics at Oxford University. After a Lectureship at Heriot-Watt University (September 2004 - May 2006) and a modeller position leading a Systems Biology Team at Unilever Corporate Research (May 2006 - December 2007) I joined UCL in December 2007, firstly as a Research Fellow within the Department of Mathematics (December 2007 -September 2010) and then as a Research Fellow within the Medical Physics and Bioengineering Department (September 2010-September 2012).

In September 2012 I took a position of an Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Modelling Infectious Diseases at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) whilst attaining an honorary position within the Department of Mathematics at UCL. In addition to this post, since February 2015 I have been a Senior Research Fellow at UCL (within Clinical Operational Reseach Unit (CORU - until Jan 2018) and in Department of Applied Health Research (DAHR since Jan 2018)).

I also hold (honorary) Lectureship position at the Department of Mathematics and at the Institute of Global Health at UCL, (honorary) Lectureship position at the Centre of Mathematical Biology at Oxford University and an honorary Academic post at Public Health England (PHE).

Research Summary

My research has been driven by my enthusiasm for mathematics and science and the need to answer important public health questions by using appropriate mathematical models and scientific methods. I have completeda broad range of research in epidemiological analysis and modelling of infectious and communicable diseases with policy implications. My current work focuses on applying statistical modelling to a number of different projects at any one time and is very fast paced. For example, currently I am simultaneously working on four different projects. Firstly, I use statistics to evaluate two separate post-trial interventions within the UK health system. Secondly, I use multi-state models to assess whether repeated screening is the most effective treatment against prostate cancer.

To date I have 23 journal publications, 11 technical reports, 2 chapters of books and over 25 short papers in conference proceedings. I regularly present my work at scientific conferences either as talks (20 to date) or posters (15 to date) as well as attending scientific workshops (11 to date) in the UK, within Europe and worldwide.


I am also a journal Reviewer for leading journals including Epidemics, Vaccine, Biophysical Journal, Biosystems, Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, IMA Journal of Applied Mathematics, Journal of Theoretical Biology, Mathematical Biosciences, Nonlinearity, Royal Society Interface Journal, Epidemics, PLoS One.

Teaching Summary

 I enjoy teaching and am willing to teach and examine courses at all levels constantly reviewing my teaching following students’ feedback and striving to improve. During my doctoral studies at Oxford I was a College lecturer at a number of different colleges, teaching at undergraduate level, whereas in my LSHTM and UCL positions, I am teaching at MSc level as well as actively supervising MSc theses. I currently lecture on three MSc courses across different departments at UCL, leading on a new MSc module since October 2017.


I am very keen to support the development of undergraduate, postgraduate and early-career researchers and I have a record of successful supervision of postgraduate students. Over the last 4 years I have supervised to completion 6 MSc students and was also on the supervisory board for one PhD student at LSHTM (2011-2015; with Charlotte Watts) and currently (from September 2015) I’m the primary supervisor for a PhD student at CoMPLEX, UCL.
