Maliwan Hongsuwan

Postdoctoral Researcher

Maliwan Hongsuwan is a postdoctoral researcher under Prof Ben Cooper at the Bacterial Resistance Analysis Group (BRAG) of the Department of Mathematical/Economic Modelling, the Mahidol-Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU) in Thailand. She did her PhD at the School of Health and Social Care (HSC), Open University, where she led an intervention study to improve hand hygiene in a 1,000-bed hospital in northeast, Thailand, and conducted quantitative and qualitative studies to improve infection prevention and control. Her research focuses on how to achieve sustained, rather than transient, improvements in hand hygiene behaviour amongst hospital staff.

Maliwan is currently the project manager of a randomised control trial on reducing the duration of antibiotic treatment in ventilator-associated pneumonia. The study is important to reduce antibiotic consumption and to reduce AMR infections.

Maliwan’s specific research interests are the hospital-acquired infections and AMR infections, and in particular she focuses on seeking effective interventions to reduce the infections.
