Katelyn is the nowcasting and natural history team lead within the real-time analysis branch of the Predict arm of the new CFA centre. Prio to this they had a McDonnell Foundation Complex Systems Fellowship in the Cobey lab researching immune processes that allow such biases in immune memory to develop. They also took part in the US COVID-19 response including writing an influential paper “Practical considerations for measuring the effective reproductive number”.
