Dr. Alemayehu Midekisa is a postdoctoral fellow in the Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) at the UCSF Global Health Group. He earned his MSc in Remote Sensing and GIS at Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia and his PhD in Geospatial Sciences and Engineering at South Dakota State University in USA. His doctoral research examined environmental risk factors of malaria in the highlands of East Africa using earth observation satellite data. Dr. Midekisa won a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship (NESSF) for his doctoral research. His broader research interests include the application of earth observation data to quantify environmental and climatic risk factors and develop predictive models for outbreaks of vector-borne diseases. Dr. Midekisa is currently working at UCSF Global Health Group to develop an automated malaria risk forecasting tool using Google cloud computing and near-real time satellite observations.
