Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering
Alison Hill is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. Her research focuses on developing mathematical and computational tools to help us better understand, predict, and treat infectious diseases. She has worked extensively on HIV/AIDS, drug-resistant infections, and SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19, studying infection dynamics both within individual hosts and at the population level. Alison is broadly interested in improving our understanding of biological systems through mathematical modeling, and in the past has worked on social contagion, transmission network structure, the bed bug epidemic, the origin of multicellularity, human herpesviruses, T cell receptor repertoires, iron regulation in the body, and the opioid crisis. She has a BS in Physics from Queen's University (Canada), a PhD in Biophysics/Medical Physics from the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences & Technology, and an MPH from Harvard School of Public Health. Before arriving at JHU, she was a John Harvard Distinguished Science Fellow at Harvard.
