“[Caroline Buckee’s] work is focused on understanding the mechanisms driving the spread of infectious diseases that impact the most vulnerable populations worldwide, particularly malaria. She is interested in the impact of human mobility and migration on the spread and control of pathogens, and Buckee’s group uses a range of mathematical models, experimental and genomic data, and big data from mobile phones and satellites to understand how human mobility patterns spread pathogens and may be used to inform public health interventions.”
