Ernest Guevarra

Teaching Fellow, Spatial Epidemiology

  • Teaching topics: famines, development and humanitarian interventions for health, and evaluation methods for development and health.

I have more than 15 years of professional experience in community and public health in humanitarian crises and developing country-settings, including as a community health worker, medical doctor, and recently as specialised expert and head of metrics, analytics and technology for Valid International. I have expertise in spatial epidemiology, geo-statistics, and statistical programming using R. In my recent role as Head of Measures for Valid International, I led the design, development and implementation of innovative surveys and assessments on health and nutrition and bespoke analytical approaches that leverage the advantages of Bayesian statistics and resampling techniques.

I am a founding member of Katilingban, a collective of public health and nutrition experts and practitioners. I am currently part of the Oxford COVID-19 Modelling Consortium (CoMo Consortium) Philippines team or CoMo-PH along with two other public health practitioners from the Philippines. We aim to test and compare the CoMo Consortium model with existing local models that have previously been developed.
