Mathieu Maheu-Giroux, ScD

Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Population Health Modeling

Assistant Professor, McGill University

I am an interdisciplinary public health researcher and my work has focused primarily on 1) infectious disease modeling, 2) epidemiology and measurements, and 3) impact and economic evaluations of public health interventions.

As of 2017, I have joined the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics at McGill University. Prior to this appointment, I was a sponsored researcher in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London.

Modélisation de la COVID-19 au Québec
