Kinley Wangdi


Dr Kinley Wangdi is a spatial epidemiologist with medical training. He is currently working as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Global Health, ANU Research School of Population Health (RSPH) in collaboration with James Cook University (JCU) on the DFAT-funded project “Tropical partnerships to strengthen health systems responses to infectious diseases threats.” This project will evaluate the use of District Health Information System (DHIS) 2, in Solomon Islands for vector-borne disease (VBD) management. The findings from this study will be used for the development of a spatial decision support system within the DHIS 2 framework to enhance its functionality for VBD management.

Within ACREME, Kinley will facilitate projects in the surveillance theme to develop spatial decision support system and spatial modelling under the supervision of Prof Archie Clements.
