Biography 

Cory Morin has recently joined the Department of Global Health as an acting assistant professor in the Center for Health and the Global Environment (CHanGE). He received his PhD from the University of Arizona in Geography (minor in Entomology and Insect Science) with a concentration on climate and environmental influences on the ecology of vectors and vector-borne diseases. Cory recently completed a NASA fellowship at Marshall Space Flight Center focused on applying datasets derived from remotely sensed satellite data to health applications. His research uses data-driven, process-based models to simulate mosquito population and virus transmission dynamics with the aim of identifying climate and meteorological conditions that facilitate epidemics. Cory's recent work has focused on Aedes transmitted pathogens including the dengue and Zika viruses and incorporating weather and climate forecasts into models for disease prediction.
