Mathematical modeling of climate change, dengue & mosquitoes. System dynamic modelling of happiness & life satisfaction. PhDs in physics 1989 (USA) and in public health 2018 (Sweden).
Jing Helmersson (PhDs) has recently just finished her 2nd PhD at Department of Public Health and Clinical Medicine, Umeå University, Sweden, on Mathematical Modeling of Climate Change, Dengue Fever and Mosquitos. She was formerly a professor in Physics from California State University Long Beach and has published 74 scientific articles in both physics and public health (11). Her 24 years of physics research consists of quantum optics, atomic physics and soft condensed matter physics.
Her research interests include mathematical modeling of infectious diseases and epidemiology, system dynamics modelling of complex health issues, indigenous population wellbeing, arctic research and successful living. Specifically, her current and future plan in research include
1) modelling climate change and infectious disease such as Zika and mosquito vectors,
2) wellbeing of Indigenous people in Arctic regions,
3) promote successful living through enhancing capacity and reaching potentials based on Salutogenesis and seeing with a holistic view of human being having body, mind and spirit.
