Personal Statement

I am an epidemiologist with extensive research and training experience in tropical disease biology, ecology, surveillance and control in more than 20 countries in the sub-Saharan African, Middle Eastern and Asia-Pacific regions. I joined the Institute of Infection, Veterinary and Ecological Sciences in June 2021. My current research focuses on the landscape ecology and applied epidemiology of vector-borne diseases, neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) and emerging zoonosis in humans in the context of environmental and climate change. I use geographical information systems, meteorological data and satellite remote sensing data and statistical applications to better understand the factors driving the spatial and temporal distributions of human infections and clinical conditions, and insect vectors, with capacity strengthening of UK and endemic-country MSc/PhD students, scientists and public health stakeholders as a cross-cutting theme.
