Ashleigh Tuite

PhD, MPH, MSc

Ashleigh Tuite is an infectious disease epidemiologist, mathematical modeler, and an assistant professor at the University of Toronto’s Dalla Lana School of Public Health. Dr. Tuite’s research program focuses on the use of mathematical modeling and other quantitative methods to improve decision-making for emerging, re-emerging, and endemic communicable diseases. She uses models to project the spread of communicable diseases and better understand and quantify the health, economic, and social implications of different control measures and policies. She is particularly interested in the use of mathematical models to synthesize and communicate complex information and uncertainty.
