I am a data scientist currently working on the end-to-end genomic surveillance of malaria parasites. Genomic surveillance allows the tracking of variation of parasites around the world, and this information can be used to identify spatiotemporal drug resistance trends, transmission patterns, and vaccine efficacy. This information can be used to inform public health decision-makers which can impact disease control and prevention.
