David Regan is a mathematical modeller. His research activity focuses on the development of mathematical models of STI transmission for the evaluation of public health strategies for the control and prevention of STIs. His interests include estimating the impact of human Papillomavirus vaccination in Australia, and the control of bacterial STIs (Chlamydia, syphilis, and gonorrhoea) and trichomoniasis in remote indigenous communities.
My research involves the development of mathematical models for studying the dynamics of infectious disease transmission and epidemics, and for evaluating the potential impact of interventions for control and prevention. In particular, I am interested in sexually transmitted infections such as HIV, Chlamydia and human papillomavirus. Our work has an important role in informing public health policy in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
