Welcome To The Staff Portal

Dr. Abdallah Mohammed Samy Ismail Gad


Dr. Samy lab has expertise in vector-borne diseases, disease burden analysis, and health economics. His research addresses several questions at the interface of ecology, epidemiology, public health, and global health. He is broadly interested in studying zoonosis, arboviral epidemiology, and the climate change that influences disease dynamics and spread. His lab uses an interdisciplinary and multi-faceted approach to research questions, typically using a combination of field and lab experiments, geographic information system, remote sensing, ecological modeling, and phylogeography. His current work on arboviruses and mosquito-borne diseases is focused on developing disease forecasts, understanding the major drivers of disease spread, and identifying the possible shifts at disease risk in response to global warming in the future. Dr. Samy serves as deputy editor for several international Journals, including PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases.
