Dr Olatunji Johnson

Modeller, Epidemiologist, Other
Lancaster University
Olatunji's research expertise lies in the interface of statistics, mathematics and epidemiology. He is particularly interested in developing novel geospatial statistical methods for analysing data arising from surveys conducted on Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD). He has worked on various applications of geospatial methods to NTDs including Soil-transmitted helminths, Schistosomiasis and Onchocerciasis. His research has not only provided advice to control program managers on optimal sampling design strategies in order to assess the progress made in eradication or elimination of the diseases but has also helped to identify communities that need urgent treatment.
