Dr Moritz KraemerAlumnus

Moritz researched the distribution and spread of dengue's two primary vectors and obtained his DPhil in 2016. He is especially interested in new methods to model population movement and how this movement affects the spread and evolution of disease. Moritz is also interested in measures of uncertainty and risk and how to build models that capture and visualise them, in a way to better inform decision makers.

He has moved to the evolutionary biology and infectious disease group at the University of Oxford and will soon take up his fellowship at Harvard University, USA.
