Research project: Seasonal drivers of human movement and aggregation in a changing climate: consequences for infectious disease dynamics and control - Dormant

Currently Active: 
No

Dr Tatem and the post-doctoral assistant funded through the project will focus principally on the analysis of mobile phone call data records (CDRs), GIS, satellite, migration and other demographic datasets.

This will include the production of key underlying demographic datasets to be used in all analyses proposed, such as those being produced through Dr Tatem’s WorldPop project (www.worldpop.org). Moreover, datasets describing human mobility patterns, especially their seasonal components, from census and survey data will be obtained and processed for input into modelling analyses. These mobility datasets also include analysis of CDRs to understand human seasonal dynamics, including datasets from Namibia, Nepal, Haiti and Ghana, amongst others. Finally, through links with national disease control programs across the Americas, Africa and Asia, Dr Tatem will work on accessing and analysing disease data together with the other project members, in particular malaria data from elimination settings.
