Audience: SECReT students
Professor Fine is a leading expert in parasitology and epidemiology from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and has been involved in research and teaching in various countries worldwide, including a large epidemiological research programme in Malawi from 1978-2006. He has been awarded several prestigious prizes in recognition of his contributions to tropical health and epidemiology. Epidemiology is a term that comes up a lot in crime science, and this seminar introduced the basics of the discipline before moving on to a debate about how the fields can advance one another.
