Mr Chris Lourenco is Postgraduate Research Student within Geography and Environmental Science at the University of Southampton.

Chris completed a BA in biochemistry-molecular biology from Boston University in 2004. While continuing at BU as a laboratory researcher, he completed his MPH in 2008 concentrating in infectious disease epidemiology. This sparked his interest in global health and after gaining programme management experience in Boston, he brought his skills together as a malaria analyst for the Clinton Health Access Initiative in 2011. He was then stationed in Namibia for 3 years where he became a technical advisor for their national vector-borne diseases control programme and assisted the country in malaria elimination strategies and training. Through the work with CHAI in Namibia, Chris collaborated with Dr. Tatem on a project involving population mobility and its utility in malaria elimination planning and surveillance system construction. This led to his current Ph.D. pursuits at the University of Southampton where this research will continue in collaboration with CHAI.
