Unfortunately, modelling of infectious disease no longer needs as much introduction as it did before 2020. The use of mathematical approaches during the COVID -19 pandemic was very visible, both for aiding policy decisions, and for the public understanding of the unfolding pandemic. In this lecture, I will give a speed introduction to the ideas of mathematical modelling, how we were able to contribute to scientific advice to the UK government, and also something of my personal story on science communication during the pandemic.
