TB MAC’s activities are coordinated by the TB MAC Secretariat.

Richard White


Richard is Professor of Infectious Disease Modelling in the Centre for the Mathematical Modelling of Infectious Diseases and the TB Centre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. He leads the LSHTM TB Modelling Group. His research focus is the mathematical and statistical modelling of the transmission and control of infectious diseases, particularly TB and HIV.

Finn McQuaid

Secretariat Epidemiologist
Finn is an Assistant Professor in Infectious Disease Epidemiology at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, and the TB MAC Secretariat Epidemiologist. His research focuses on multi-drug resistant TB. He has previously worked on global food security and the spatially explicit control of epidemics in sub-Saharan Africa.

Madeleine Clarkson

Secretariat Research Assistant

Madeleine is a Research Assistant at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She has had experience applying modelling techniques to pathogen diversity, cost-effectiveness models for malaria screening and treatment, and measuring the positive externality of influenza vaccines on antibiotic use. She is interested in the application of complex systems to modelling health structures.

Kristian Godfrey

Secretariat Programme Manager

Kristian is the Programme Manager for TB MAC. Prior to joining the LSHTM in March 2015, Kristian worked with the Open Society Foundation, King’s College London, the Australian Red Cross in Melbourne, and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.

Previous Members

Rein Houben

Secretariat Epidemiologist

Rein is an Associate Professor at the London School of Hygeine and Tropical Medicine. While a member of the TB MAC Secretariat he led the development and implementation of the TIME countr-level TB model. His research focuses on using mathematical modelling techniques to inform TB policy in LMICs and to understand the natural history of TB, with a particular interest in latent TB infection and structural drivers of TB.
