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 influences on disease dynamic 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 forecast, understanding the major drivers of disease spread, and identifying the possible shifts at disease risk in response to global warming in the future.
