Irene Kyomuhangi

I am a PhD student at the CHICAS at Lancaster University Medical School. With a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Sciences from Aston University, and a Master’s degree in Immunology of Infectious diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, I have a special interest in the surveillance and control of infectious diseases in the tropics.

My previous work includes collection and management of data for malaria epidemiology studies in Sub-Saharan Africa and south East Asia, as well as teaching post-graduate immunology. My PhD will focus on integrating multiple datasets for more efficient tropical disease prevalence mapping, under the supervision of Emanuele Giorgi and Luigi Sedda.

Outside academia, I enjoy traveling, live music, and comedy.
