Select from the following:
Jeff Stanaway, PhD, MPH, is Assistant Professor at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington. He is part of the research team for the landmark Global Burden of Disease study. In this role, he models morbidity and mortality from enteric diseases and environmental risk factors. His research focuses on macro-epidemiology with a special interest in understanding connections between the physical environment (e.g., climate and land cover) and the spatiotemporal distribution of disease.
Dr. Stanaway received his PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Washington and his MPH from the University of Arizona. During his graduate work, Dr. Stanaway served as an Epi Scholars Intern with Public Health – Seattle & King County. In his doctoral research, he explored the landscape ecology of hand, foot, and mouth disease (HFMD) in China and the potential role of climate change as a driver in the emergence of HFMD in Asia. He also began developing and validating a novel method to detect unknown animal reservoirs based on a disease’s associations with land cover pattern.
