Bradley Wagner has a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from McMaster University (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada), where he also has a Master of Science in Mathematics. Additionally, he has a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics as well as Chemistry from the University of British Columbia. Prior to joining IDM, Bradley was a postdoctoral fellow at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Bradley’s postdoctoral research focused on the mathematical modeling of HIV drug resistance, while his Ph.D. research concentrated on the mathematical modeling of childhood infectious disease dynamics including the design of optimal vaccination strategies.
His research within IDM is an extension of that previous work, with a focus on developing and implementing mathematical models of HIV and tuberculosis (TB) transmission and the goal of designing effective treatment and prevention programs.
