Dr Michael Chipeta
Geospatial Epidemiology Researcher
Michael joined the Oxford GBD Group as a Geospatial Epidemiology Researcher in 2018, where he leads the geospatial analysis and mapping of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) burden estimates of selected `bug-drug’ combinations. Prior to joining Oxford GBD, Michael held a postdoctoral fellowship in biostatistics at Lancaster University (UK) and Malawi-Liverpool Wellcome Trust, where he worked on the development of geospatial surveillance methods and applications. In this role, he used novel geospatial methods to improve predictive models of local spatial-temporal variation in malaria disease burden, transmission and control coverage at population level in Malawi.
Michael has a background in statistics and epidemiology, holding a BSc in mathematical sciences and an MSc in biostatistics from the University of Malawi, and a Doctorate in statistics and epidemiology from Lancaster University.
