Dillon Adam

PhD Student / Research Officer
Research Officer

Dillon is a PhD candidate within the Kirby Institute’s Biosecurity Program lead by Professor Raina MacIntyre. He is also co-supervised by Associate Professor Matthew Scotch at Arizona State University. His PhD is focused on applying viral phylogeography methods to understand the evolutionary and transmission dynamics of pathogens of public health significance in order to improve epidemic preparedness and response planning. He also provides research support for studies in epidemic intelligence within the NHMRC Centre for Research Excellence in Integrated Systems for Epidemic Response. In this role he manages the development of a rapid analysis outbreak surveillance system called EpiWATCH.  He received his BSc from the University of Queensland majoring in Biomedical Sciences and his MPH from the University of Sydney. During his MPH he was accepted into a professional practice placement at the Western Sydney Centre for Population Health where he completed an enhanced surveillance project on gonorrhoea.
