Michelle Stanton

Michelle is an MRC research fellow in CHICAS whose interests predominantly lie in developing and applying statistical methods and digital health tools to public health problems affecting low and middle income countries (LMICs). Michelle undertook her PhD in spatial epidemiology at CHICAS, following which she worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. It was during this time that she became interested in geospatial technology and digital health and their potential public health applications in LMICs. In particular, Michelle's work focuses on how spatio-temporally referenced data from the field can be used to guide vector-borne disease control activities. Michelle's MRC fellowship examines the spatio-temporal variability in three neglected tropical diseases (human African trypanosomiasis, schistosomiasis, lymphatic filariasis) and malaria over small geographical areas.
