Professor Maude is Head of Epidemiology at Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit, Bangkok, Thailand and Associate Professor in Tropical Medicine at the University of OxfordHonorary Consultant Physician at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and a Visiting Scientist at Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, Harvard University, Boston, USA. He has worked at Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit since 2007.

His research combines clinical studies, descriptive epidemiology and mathematical modelling of human diseases in South and Southeast Asia. His areas of interest include spatiotemporal epidemiology, GIS mapping, disease surveillance, health policy, pathogen genetics and population movement with a focus on malaria, dengue, novel pathogens and environmental health.

Dr. Ipsita Sinha

ipsita

Dr Ipsita Sinha is part of the Epidemiology department at MORU, and a Research Physician in Tropical Medicine at the University of Oxford. She is also an honorary medical registrar at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford.

Ipsita’s research interests include spatiotemporal modelling, GIS mapping, population movement with dynamic modelling of malaria spread, parasite genetics and evolution, with emphasis on artemisinin resistance and malaria elimination. She particularly enjoys travelling to different field sites and gaining practical experience in the pathogenesis of malaria and challenges in monitoring and managing the disease at a local and national level.

Ipsita is currently pursuing her doctoral studies at University of Oxford in mapping and predicting the potential spread of malaria and artemisinin resistance in South-East Asia and South Asia to better inform targeting of malaria control and elimination interventions.

Sazid Ibna Zaman

sazid

Based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Sazid Ibna Zaman is a Data Manager & GIS Specialist for the Epidemiology and Mathematical and Economic Modeling (MAEMOD) departments at the Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU). He provides technical support relating to the standardization, collection, sharing and analysis of geospatial data and the efficient use of geography and GIS technology for decision making.

Sazid’s research aims to identify the spatial distribution of malaria in terms of both the host humans and mosquitoes in Bangladesh over space and time and investigate the determinants of the changing pattern of the spatial distribution of malaria to inform planning of strategies for malaria control and elimination. He focuses on clinical and epidemiological field studies, collation of data from a wide range of partners, GIS mapping, spatial statistical analysis and modelling, as well as building capacity in epidemiology and mapping across the region. His research interests include malaria elimination, spatiotemporal epidemiology, GIS mapping, geo-statistical & hotspot analysis, vector behavior, environmental modelling and population movement studies.

EDUCATION

  • 2006 BSc in Geography & Environment, University of Dhaka, Bangladesh
  • 2013  MSc in Environmental Science, State University of Bangladesh
