Dr Parker is an infectious disease epidemiologist who specializes in spatial epidemiology and demography. He has worked on spatial analyses of malaria and other vector-borne infectious diseases for over a decade. His recent work has focused on the spatial impacts of targeted malaria interventions like mass drug administration; the space-time distribution of COVID-19 in Orange County, California; spatial and temporal distributions of neglected tropical diseases in Lao PDR; geographical access to healthcare for pregnant folks along the Thailand-Myanmar border; and assessments of environmental and biological factors as predictors of disease. In his research he considers the ways that humans interact with their environments, how that leads to risk of disease, and how this information can be used to inform or implement public health interventions.
