Dr Ipsita Sinha
Dr Ipsita Sinha is part of the Epidemiology department at MORU, and a Research Physician in Tropical Medicine at the University of Oxford. She is also an honorary medical registrar at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford. Ipsita’s research interests include spatiotemporal modelling, GIS mapping, population movement with dynamic modelling of malaria spread, parasite genetics and evolution, with emphasis on artemisinin resistance and malaria elimination. She particularly enjoys travelling to different field sites and gaining practical experience in the pathogenesis of malaria and challenges in monitoring and managing the disease at a local and national level.
Ipsita is currently pursuing her doctoral studies at University of Oxford in mapping and predicting the potential spread of malaria and artemisinin resistance in South-East Asia and South Asia to better inform targeting of malaria control and elimination interventions.
