Dr Marc Choisy
Monthly incidence of dengue syndromes
COVID-19 in Vietnam
Group head (Mathematical Modelling)
Marc Choisy is the head of Mathematical Modelling at OUCRU in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. He holds a MSc in Biostatistics, a MSc in Ecology & Evolution, and a PhD in Integrative Biology from the University of Montpellier, France. He is an Associate Editor of the PLoS Neglected Tropical Diseases journal and an honorary Associate Professor at the Hong Kong University (School of Public Health).
Marc uses mathematical and computational models to understand the transmission of infectious diseases in populations. He is particularly interested in the environmental and climatic drivers of disease epidemiology, the spread of diseases in space, the optimization of vaccine policies and the reduction of antimicrobial resistance. He’s been working mostly on measles, influenza and dengue. He is currently co-leading a hospital-based sero-surveillance system in Vietnam that will provide key data to feed epidemiological models in order to optimize immunization strategies at the country level. He is also very interested in big data and open data, the development of tools for the R programming language, as well as reproducible research.
