Dr Darren Green MA PhD DIC
I am interested the ecology of disease, how diseases spread from place to place, why particular populations are more at risk than others, and how we can control and prevent disease outbreaks.
Oct 2007 - Present
University of Stirling, Institute of Aquaculture
Lecturer in Aquatic Health Modelling.
My research involves a variety of numerical approaches to tackling problems of aquatic animal health discussed more in the "projects" section below.
May 2004 - Aug 2007
University of Oxford, Department of Zoology
Post-doctoral research assistant. Research centred on the modelling and epidemiology of disease. The approaches include network models of disease spread, deterministic differential-equation-based models, and individual-based microsimulation. Aspects of this research were featured twice on Farming Today and recently were reported in the Daily Telegraph online.
May 2000 - May 2004
University of Edinburgh, School of Geosciences (form. IERM)
Post-doctoral research associate. Work as part of a DEFRA LINK research programme. My research was centred on the production of a simulation model of animal growth response to nutrition and the environment. The animal concerned was the domestic pig. The model was then tested against growth trial data from dissection and monitoring of live animals through imaging by video camera (visual image analysis, VIA).
