Dr. Clara Champagne

Clara Champagne is an infectious disease modeller with a background in applied mathematics and statistics.

She works in the Analytics and Intervention Modelling group to provide country specific modelling support for decision making on malaria interventions.

Her recent work includes P. vivax modelling with applications in Central America and South-East Asia, the use of a model with human movement to represent malaria dynamics in Haiti and optimisation models for community health worker geographical placement. She has also participated in the modelling work supporting malaria control programmes within the HBHI initiative.
