Data-driven models to assess impacts of integrated vector management strategies on mosquito-borne diseases

Project summary

Samson is a research scientist with a special interest in developing informatics systems and mathematical models based on infectious diseases, especially malaria. During this Fellowship, he aims to develop and support informatics systems for collating and standardising entomological and environmental datasets, and create effective interfaces that enable multiple researchers to more effectively collaborate, share, and synthesise data using standardised formats across multiple studies and sites. His main focus is on developing mathematical models that can be used to evaluate impacts and cost-effectiveness of integrated interventions against malaria vectors extendable to other mosquito-borne diseases - a potential decision tool for national malaria control programmes.

This grant was awarded under the scheme's previous name of Training Fellowships in Public Health and Tropical Medicine.
