Dr Kristen Aiemjoy is an Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at the University of California, Davis School of Medicine, a visiting scientist with the Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU), and a visiting Fulbright Scholar with Mahidol University Faculty of Tropical Medicine.
Kristen’s research centers on measurement, surveillance, and diagnostics for infectious diseases with a focus on seroepidemiologic methods to understand the force of infection in populations. She has developed a new approach for estimating the incidence of typhoid fever that leverages longitudinal antibody dynamics from confirmed cases. Dr Aiemjoy is extending these methods to estimate the seroincidence of melioidosis and scrub typhus.
