Personal profile

Most of my work follows the general topic of spatial and spatio-temporal patterns of infectious diseases. A large fraction of my previous work is on mosquito-borne diseases (e.g. dengue, chikungunya, West-Nile fever, Usutu), where environmental factors such as climate and weather play an important role. Ecological Niche Models (ENM), also known as Specis Distribution Models (SDM) are a great tool for studying the relationships between the environment and the vectors, hosts and pathogens. More recently, I have been working of spatial applications of process-based epidemiological models, as well as the combined use of both types of models for a prototype early warning system based on long-term climate data as well as live weather forecast models. Lately, I have been investigating options for the detection of spatio-temporal patterns in COVID-19 incidence data.
