Event details

Disease Ecology Meeting

This session will be led by Cori Ruktanonchai, who has been researching Bayesian population projections in the context of births and pregnancies. Cori will talk about some of her work generating probability surfaces for a few maternal and neonatal health indicators including skilled birth attendance, antenatal care and postnatal care in East African countries.

The disease ecology group meets monthly in Geography and Environment at the University of Southampton.

These meetings are intended for staff and postgraduate students at the University of Southampton with an interest in disease ecology, spatial epidemiology and the types of spatial analysis and modelling methods that may be used in this field. There will also be a lot of relevance in some of our meetings for researchers in similar fields (e.g. species distribution modelling, health geography).

All are welcome to join us – it’s a great opportunity to get together and discuss on-going research, methods, conferences, publications and more in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. Feel free to bring your lunch. Usually, the first half of the session will be a presentation, and the second half will be set aside for discussion.

Further details about this talk and other in the series can be found here.
