It's a new year and that means that I have officially taken up my position as a new Canada Research Chair in Population Disease Modeling at the University of Guelph. I will miss many aspects of my former role at the Public Health Agency of Canada but I am really excited to be starting a new research program here in Guelph! In case you missed it, I did a brief interview with the Guelph Mercury when my chair was announced on November 14, 2013 to discuss my area of research. You can find the article here.
I am busy getting settled, unpacking my office, setting up computers and getting positioned to start recruiting new students for Fall 2014. If you are a student interested in graduate studies in my research group please review the Opportunities page of the website. New information will be available once the semester gets underway so check back often to see what we are up to.
