I am a researcher and infectious disease epidemiologist, I hold MSc and PhD in epidemiology and Public Health from Umeå University, Sweden. I also completed my postdoc at faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, Norway. My main interest in Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases including Antimicrobial Resistance(AMR) and Neglected Tropical Diseases. I am using “The One Health Approach” where multidisciplinary teams work together to understand the interplay between environment ,animal health and human health as well as to ensure health for all.

My interest and experience include:

Zoonotic diseases, Arbovirus from One Health perspective, vector-borne outbreak investigations and response, Zoonotic Antimicroibial Resistance , the One Health surveillance, risk analysis and communication, well as International Health Regulations (IHR) related to zoonotic and vector-borne transboundary diseases and epidemiologic method.

I am more interested to transfer knowledge in between low and high income countries. This is going to be through joint research projects. I do consultancies for International organizations related to my area of expertise whenever needed.
