Ursula DalrympleDPhil Candidate
Ursula joined SEEG in 2013 as a Research Assistant in Peter Gething's group. She was involved in the updating and maintenance of a bespoke database containing multiple types of information on malaria prevalence, disease burden, and covariates. From October 2015, Ursula became a DPhil candidate with the Malaria Atlas Project, investigating febrile illness and its relationship with P. falciparum infection.

The changing endemicity and disease burden of Plasmodium falciparum
At a time when increases in funding for malaria control have led to widespread scale-up of key interventions, our understanding of how P. falciparum malaria transmission, disease, and death...
