Dr Josephine Reyes is a postdoctoral research fellow with the Infection Analytics Program (IAP) at the Kirby Institute. Her main interests include infectious disease modelling, health economics, mathematical education and mathematical optimisation.
She also worked at the School of Public Health and Community Medicine UNSW on economic evaluation and epidemiological impact of vaccination programs. At the Kirby Institute, she also studied the cost-effectiveness of HIV/AIDS prevention programs, while also looking at the effect of adherence behaviours and treatment outcomes on the prevalence of drug resistance in HIV transmission. She obtained her PhD studying the evolution of genetic markers of tuberculosis at the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences at the UNSW. Josephine is a trained mathematician with a bachelor and master’s degree in mathematics from the University of the Philippines in Diliman (UPD). She also served as an instructor of mathematics at the UPD and as an assistant professorial lecturer at the De La Salle University in the Philippines.
