Peter Macharia, PhD
I am a postdoc in spatial epidemiology at Lancaster University, UK and KEMRI Wellcome Trust Research Programme, Kenya. I work under the guidance of Dr Giorgi at CHICAS to develop geostatistical methods of mapping disease prevalence in presence of incomplete spatial information using school survey data.
I am interested in spatial health metrics to aid in a better understanding of health inequalities, vulnerabilities, and population health through the use of conditional autoregressive and geostatistical models. I also map physical access, marginalization, and vulnerability indices. I have published broadly in spatial epidemiology journals.
I have a PhD in spatial epidemiology, Master's in GIS & remote sensing, Postgraduate diploma in health research and a BSc in Geomatic Engineering & GIS .
