Personal profile


Romain Ragonnet is an infectious disease modeller. He obtained a Master's degree in Applied Mathematics at the University of Lille (France) in 2014. He then realised his doctoral studies at the University of Melbourne between 2015 and 2018. The topic of his PhD was the mathematical modelling of tuberculosis.

Romain has extensive experience in the fields of epidemiological research and programmatic application, both using the mathematical modelling tool. A significant part of his research work consists in exploring the dynamics of Mycobacterium tuberculosis transmission in order to improve the understanding of TB epidemiology and to assist local and global TB control.
