Tasmin is a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Geospatial Epidemiology with the Malaria Atlas Project. Working closely with other team members, she focusses on the development of national level high-resolution spatiotemporal modelling of malaria prevalence and incidence, and understanding the patterns in treatment-seeking behaviour and non-malarial febrile illnesses. Her main stream of work contributes to the World Health Organisation’s “High Burden to High Impact” initiative.
Prior to joining MAP, Tasmin completed her PhD at Imperial College London as part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Mathematics of Planet Earth, where she was supervised by Professor N. H. Bingham. Her PhD research focussed on the theoretical properties of spatial and spatio-temporal Gaussian random fields parametrised by non-Euclidean geometries (specifically the sphere). During her PhD she also completed a summer project at the UK Met Office.
