Julia Rose Gog is a British mathematician, David N. Moore Fellow and Director of Studies in Mathematics at Queens' College, Cambridge and Professor of mathematical biology in the University of Cambridge Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics.[1][2] She is also a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network and the Cambridge Infectious Diseases Interdisciplinary Research Centre.[3][4] Her research specialises in using mathematical techniques to study infectious diseases, particularly influenza.[2]


In 2017 Gog was one of 13 women mathematicians featured in the touring photographic exhibition Women of Mathematics. It showed photographs by Noel Tovia Matoff and extracts from interviews with the women.[5][6]

She held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship from 2004 to 2012.[7]

In 2015 she was a winner of the University of Cambridge's Pilkington Prize for excellence in teaching,[8] and in 2016 she was involved in the National Young Mathematicians’ Awards, a project in which 490 schools competed.[9][10] She won the Whitehead Prize in 2017.[11]

Her paper "The influenza virus: it's all in the packaging" was included in the book 50 Visions of Mathematics (editor Sam Parc, Oxford University Press, ISBN 9780198701811), published to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, a book "designed to showcase the beauty of mathematics ... without frying your brain".[12][13]
