Matt Denwood has been employed at the University of Copenhagen since 2014, and was appointed as Professor of Computational and Statistical Disease Modelling in 2023. His main research interests are in the application of quantitative epidemiology to problems affecting animal disease and production, including statistical and mathematical modelling of animal disease systems, appropriate consideration of diagnostic tests for evaluation of disease, and the use of stochastic modelling as a tool to understand the underlying processes of disease systems. Amongst other duties, he works as part of the DK-VET consortium to provide research-based consultancy to support the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration's decision-making processes in the areas of endemic, exotic and notifiable animal diseases. He has a long history of collaboration with researchers in Scotland stemming from his time as a PhD student, post-doc and lecturer in production animal health at the University of Glasgow. He completed his PhD in 2010 with co-supervision from BioSS staff, and has been a BioSS associate ever since, with a continuing focus on collaboration on topics within quantitative parasitology (particularly assessment of anthelmintic resistance), diagnostic test evaluation, and other statistical methods with applications in animal health and welfare.
