Equations of Disease is run by Dr Amanda Minter:

I created Equations of Disease (EoD) to support the next generation of epidemic modellers.

Before setting up EoD, I worked in infectious disease dynamics research for 8 years. I taught R, statistics and mathematical modelling at University of Warwick, UK, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, UK, University of Malaya, Malaysia, Federal University of Bahia, Brazil and the University of Leeds, UK.

The mission of EoD is to provide high quality, accessible training to learners in the Global South in support of decolonisation of global health.
