Dr McLure is mathematical modeller of infectious diseases. His current  research includes modelling the transmission and elimination of  lymphatic filariasis; the design and analysis of molecular  xenomonitoring surveys (catching disease vectors such as mosquitos to  detect the presence of a disease); and source attribution modelling of  foodborne disease. Angus has worked on projects across a wide range of  diseases and pathogens including, lymphatic filariasis, C. difficile, Dengue, Campylobacter, Salmonella, and many other foodborne diseases. Angus McLure developed and maintains an R package, PoolTestR, for the analysis of molecular xenomonitoring data  and other applications where data are tested in pools: https://github.com/AngusMcLure/PoolTestR
