Dr Chrissy Roberts
Lead Scientist, Global Health Analytics Group
I am an associate professor in LSHTM’s Clinical Research Department and the lead scientist of the LSHTM Global Health Analytics Group.
I lead a team of field epidemiologists, laboratory researchers and data scientists who aim to leverage emerging technology for the benefit of human health. The team currently focuses on electronic data systems for use in emergencies and epidemics, scalable low-cost laboratory diagnostics and developing methods for integrated surveillance of infectious diseases. Through funding from the NIHR and DHSC, my group has recently been providing data collection and real time analytics support to two major evaluations of Ebola vaccines in DR Congo.
The NIHR funded Emergency and Epidemic Data Kit project won the 2018 LSHTM Director's Award for Best Research Group.
I have extensive teaching experience and I am involved in the LSHTM taught course and distance learning programme as well as supervising and mentoring research degree students.
I am the Module Organiser for the Distance Learning Module IDM-102 : Principles of Biology.
