I am a postdoc in spatial epidemiology at the Centre for Health Informatics, Computing, and Statistics (CHICAS), Lancaster University, UK and KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research Programme within the Population Health Unit (PHU), Kenya. I work under the guidance of Dr Giorgi at CHICAS to develop geostatistical methods of mapping disease prevalence in presence of incomplete spatial information using school survey data.
I am interested in spatial health metrics to aid in a better understanding of health inequalities, vulnerabilities, and population health through the use of conditional autoregressive and geostatistical models. I also map physical access, marginalization, and vulnerability indices. I have published broadly in spatial epidemiology journals.
I received my PhD in spatial epidemiology from The Open University, UK, Master’s in GIS & remote sensing from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Kenya. A postgraduate diploma in health research methods from Pwani University and a BSc in Geomatic Engineering & GIS from Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology, Kenya.
