Nick Davies


Assistant Professor of Mathematical Modelling

Theme 2 - Saving lives, optimising taxpayers investment

London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

Nick's research involves studying the evolution of antibiotic resistance in commensal microbes, at both the within-host level and in person-to-person transmission. This involves applying evolutionary epidemiology to understand what forces shape selection for antibiotic resistance. Ultimately, his focus is on how to mitigate the burden of antibiotic-resistant infections, and so is interested in how interventions like vaccines and antibiotic stewardship interact with resistance evolution.
