Tracking the Mutant Strain: Forecasting Covid in the UK 

Andrew Harvey's main research is on time series, focusing on financial time series and climate change. In March 2020 the first UK lockdown diverted his attention to modelling the spread of epidemics. He began work on COVID-19 with his Corpus Christi colleague, Paul Kattuman. This has resulted in four publications; the most recent came out in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface and the National Institute Economic Review.
