Dr Luigi Sedda

Lancaster University

Luigi is a Lecturer in Spatial Epidemiology at the Centre for Health Informatics, Computing and Statistics (CHICAS), Lancaster University (UK). His research is inter-disciplinary but focuses on vector-borne diseases, within which his particular expertise lies in modelling and inference, with a focus on understanding spatial and ecological aspects of the underlying disease processes. Examples of his analyses include Dengue in Brazil, Malaria in Africa, Tsetse flies in Zambia and Burkina Faso, and animal diseases such as Bluetongue and Schmallenbert in North Europe. His recent work is on mapping vector population dynamics in order to optimise vector surveillance and control.
