James McCaw is Professor of Mathematical Biology and an infectious diseases epidemiologist at the University of Melbourne, Australia, where he holds a split appointment between the School of Mathematics and Statistics and the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. He holds a PhD in theoretical physics and was awarded an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship (2011-15). His interests span from modelling the within-host dynamics of infection to public health control strategies, with a particular emphasis on malaria and influenza.
Within ACREME, Professor McCaw will provide leadership in two major areas of modelling: the development and application of population scale models of transmission and their use in developing and informing public health policy; and the development of host-scale pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic models for drug development and evaluation.
