Research Interests:Associate Professor David Wilson completed his PhD on infectious disease modelling in 2003, studying at Oxford University, ETH Switzerland and Queensland University of Technology. He then did a postdoctoral fellowship at UCLA on HIV epidemic modelling and optimal allocation of HIV antiretroviral drugs. From 2005, A/Prof Wilson has been based at UNSW where he coordinated Australia’s national HIV surveillance and reporting. Winner of a Eureka Prize in 2013 and the Royal Society of NSW’s Edgeworth David Medal in 2014, he is currently leading the UNSW and World Bank Optima team which conducts modelling, health economic and resource allocation studies for national governments around the world, as well as regional and global bodies and large international donors. Associate Professor Wilson is a NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and Head of the Disease Modelling and Financing Program at the Kirby Institute.
