Dr. Michael Pickles's research focuses on improving mathematical models to forecast epidemic trajectories and understand the impact of different interventions on HIV and other sexually transmitted and blood-borne infections. He is particularly interested in developing models that take into account complex social and structural factors that shape individuals' responses in terms of risk and prevention behavior. Dr. Pickles has earned a PhD in Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University and has previously worked at Oxford University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. As a research fellow at Imperial College London, UK, he collaborates with various institutions to evaluate prevention programs and assess the impact of HIV self-testing kits.
