Dr. Amos Ssematimba is a Senior Lecturer in Mathematical Epidemiology at Gulu University and is currently working as a research scientist (Researcher 6) at the University of Minnesota, Saint Paul, USA. I hold a PhD from Wageningen University, Wageningen, The Netherlands, a Master of Science degree in Mathematics from Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda, and a Bachelor of Science with education (Hons) degree (Mathematics and Physics) from Mbarara University of Science and Technology, Mbarara, Uganda. I attained research experience at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), Nairobi, Kenya having worked both as a post-doctoral scientist and scientist. I have experience in mathematical modelling, data and risk analysis, population dynamics as well as epidemiology of infectious diseases. I have worked on modelling of spread dynamics, control and risk assessment for infectious diseases such as tuberculosis, avian influenza, African swine fever and contagious bovine pleuropneumonia. I have a university teaching and supervision experience dating back to 2002. My areas of research interest are applied mathematics such as dynamical systems, population dynamics and ecological modelling, modelling of infectious disease dynamics, mathematical epidemiology and risk analysis.
