Personal Statement

My Post Doc is based in Salvador City in Brazil, where our team, with local and international collaborators, is implementing an interdisciplinary program targeting Leptospirosis (and other zoonotic and vector-borne diseases). We use epidemiological, ecological, and social science approaches to understand the complex socioeconomic and environmental drivers of infection risk. Then, we will develop a mathematical model to recommend the most cost-effective interventions to mitigate risk. I coordinate the daily activities of the program on-site, ensuring efficient communication within the team and adequate collection of data. Further, my role entails data analysis and writing of scientific articles.
