Dr Donal BisanzioSenior Postdoctoral Modeller

Donal is a veterinarian epidemiologist. His research is focused on the study of vector-borne and parasitic diseases in humans and animals with major public health impact. His multi-disciplinary research projects have included studies of West Nile virus in the USA and Italy, Lyme disease in Italy, malaria and poly-parasitism in Kenya, Dengue in Brazil and Peru, and leprosy in Brazil. Donal's studies are performed using field and satellite data, results of laboratory studies, and sophisticated statistical/mathematical analyses to construct static and dynamic models to identify risk factors for the introduction, persistence, and spread of vector-borne and parasitic infections. Donal is now a Senior Postdoctoral Modeller in Peter Gething's modelling group working on changing patterns of malaria burden in Africa.
