Dr Verity Hill is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases at the Yale School of Public Health. She is interested in the evolution and control of viruses of public health concern, especially those which have historically been neglected.

She applies molecular epidemiological and phylodynamic techniques to explore the spatial and temporal spread of viruses in close to real-time, and has most recently contributed to SARS-CoV-2 genomic analysis and control efforts in the UK.
