Dr Monica Golumbeanu
Dr Monica Golumbeanu is a postdoctoral research associate in the Disease Modelling and Intervention Dynamics group at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) headed by Prof Melissa Penny. In her research, she develops data-driven computational analyses and mathematical models in order to understand infection dynamics and the impact of interventions on host and pathogen populations. Within the context of this BRCCH project (link below), she provides her expertise and support with data analysis and model-based methods for defining and implementing a decision framework for optimizing medical interventions against COVID-19. Prior to her postdoc, Dr Golumbeanu obtained a PhD in computational biology from ETH Zurich, where she studied gene expression dynamics of HIV infection.
