Director of Malaria Risk Stratification


With over a decade of international research experience spanning the fields of astronomy, statistics, machine learning and epidemiology, Dr Ewan Cameron returned to Australia in February 2020 as an Associate Professor at Curtin University and Honorary Research Associate at the Telethon Kids Institute.

Within the Malaria Atlas Project, he leads a team responsible for the innovation of novel approaches to probabilistic disease mapping, with a focus on bespoke model development for sub-national risk stratification.

The outputs of this research support the work of the World Health Organisation (in particular with respect to the “High Burden, High Impact” project: ” a country-led response to reignite the pace of progress in the global malaria fight”), the Clinton Health Access Initiative, and the national malaria control programs of multiple endemic countries.
