Ram Raghavan

I am broadly interested in spatially-enabled computational epidemiology of vector-borne and infectious diseases and applications of geospatial approaches for enhancing animal/public health. I extensively use Geographic Information System (GIS) and remote-sensing concepts in my research alongside geo-statistical, correlative modeling, and Bayesian approaches for understanding spatio-temporal dynamics of non-stationary epidemiological processes. Our current and prior research
