Alison L Hill


I am a Research Fellow and independent principal investigator at Harvard’s Program for Evolutionary Dynamics. I hold an NIH Director’s Early Independence Award and am a member of the John Harvard Distinguished Science Fellows program. I am also affiliated with the Emerging Leaders in Biosecurity program run by the John’s Hopkins Center for Health Security. 

I develop mathematical and computational tools to help us better understand, predict, and treat infectious diseases, with a particular focus on human viral infections including HIV/AIDS.

I received my PhD in 2013 through Harvard’s Biophysics Program and was a joint graduate student in the Harvard-MIT Division of Health-Sciences and Technology (HST)’s Medical Engineering and Medical Physics program. My undergraduate degree was in physics from Queen’s University, Canada.
