Dr. Estill is a researcher, epidemiologist and mathematical modeller at the Institute of Global Health, University of Geneva, Switzerland. He obtained his MSc degree majoring in Mathematics from the University of Helsinki, Finland, in 2008. Two years later, he joined the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine at the University of Bern, Switzerland, to do a PhD in mathematical modelling of HIV focusing on sub-Saharan Africa. He completed his PhD in 2013, and continued to work as a research assistant. In 2017, he moved to the Institute of Global Health at the University of Geneva, holding also an affiliation at the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and Actuarial Science of the University of Bern. Since 2014, Dr. Estill has also collaborated closely with the Evidence-based Medicine Center of Lanzhou University in China.
Dr. Estill’s main research interests include development and application of mathematical models for the disease progression and transmission dynamics of different diseases. He has developed several mathematical models for HIV and Hepatitis C, which have been used to assess the impact and cost-effectiveness of various healthcare interventions and programmes in sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and Asia, and to inform national and international policies.
