Dr David PigottAlumnus

David was a Postdoctoral Researcher at SEEG, investigating the global distribution of a variety of diseases by using species distribution models. He primarily focussed on zoonotic diseases (including the leishmaniases and a number of viral haemorrhagic fevers) as well as some other vector-borne diseases.

In 2016 David moved to The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).
