Virginie Supervie has obtained a PhD in Biomathematics in 2006 at the University Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC) Paris 6.
From 2006 to 2009, she joined as a post-doctoral fellow the Center for Biomedical Modeling directed by Professor Sally Blower at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of Los Angeles California (UCLA).
She is now a post-doctoral fellow at the Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM) in Paris in the unit U943 on Clinical epidemiology, therapeutic strategies and virology in HIV infection directed by Dominique Costagliola.
Virginie Supervie works at the interface of biostatistics, biomathematics, public health and epidemiology. She uses the tools of statistical and mathematical sciences and epidemiology to address global public health problems. Her research has focused on the development and application of statistical methods and mathematical models in epidemiology of infectious diseases. She mainly works on HIV, but also worked on Syphilis, Tuberculosis and Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy. A main theme of Dr. Supervie’s work concerns statistical approaches for estimating disease incidence; knowledge of current patterns of incidence is essential for planning and evaluating prevention efforts and for resource allocation. She also has ongoing research in designing mathematical models that reflect the transmission dynamics of HIV. She uses her models to guide the design and evaluation of different HIV prevention and control strategies in both resource-rich and resource-constrained countries.
