    • Collating and analysing a wide range of data to understand the epidemiological characteristics of different malaria geographies and the programmatic and operational constraints facing national malaria control programs.
    • Applying mathematical models of malaria transmission to answer questions around optimal and cost-effective intervention implementation.
    • Working closely with national malaria control programs and other partners to forge new collaborations and iteratively produce outputs to support in-country decision making
    • Write technical and non-technical reports, produce high quality graphics, and present outputs at meetings and international conferences.

    Future projects within the malaria portfolio at PATH will include evaluating malaria interventions, designing and analysing trials, modelling to support national decision making, developing user-friendly analytical tools and dashboards for decision makers to use.
