Amy Wesolowski, PhD
Amy Wesolowski is an Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the Department of Epidemiology. Dr. Wesolowski’s work mainly focuses on understanding the role of human mobility on infectious disease dynamics. Her work specifically focuses on both vaccine-preventable (measles, rubella), and vector-borne (malaria, dengue) diseases that integrate modeling, statistical methods, and primary data collect to inform modeling approaches. Her group is also focused on integrating various types of data (behavioral, genomic, and serological) into models to better understand disease transmission.
She holds a BA from College of the Atlantic and a PhD in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. Prior to coming to Hopkins, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health and in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University.
