Dr Hannah Slater

Hannah Slater is a research associate in the Department of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London. Her research involves using mathematical models of malaria transmission to investigate how different control interventions impact disease dynamics and how we can use novel interventions to reduce transmission. She has recently been investigating how resistance to artemisinin or the partner drugs used in artemisinin combination therapy could impact malaria transmission in Africa if it were to develop there as it has in Cambodia and Thailand.

Hannah has also been researching the impact of ivermectin on mosquito mortality and trying to determine whether this drug could be a useful addition mass malaria treatment interventions in Africa and SE Asia.

Hannah contributes to the malaria work of the Diagnostics Modelling Consortium.
