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.
