Bio

 Dr. Lauren Gardner is a lecturer in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of New South Wales. Her core research area is network modelling, specifically developing network based mathematical models to quantify metrics for risk, health, economic, environmental and societal impacts of transport systems. 

 Her contribution to the CRE is a project on quantifying the combined impact transportation systems, ecological systems and social networks have on the epidemiological process. She has recently developed predictive models which exploit the use of network optimization tools, real-time infection data, ecological models, and properties of the transport system. These models can aid in surveillance and policy decisions for the prevention and control of emerging infectious diseases. She will be collaborating with Prof Raina MacIntyre, Anita Heywood, James Wood and other members of the team.
