Personal profile

Research Interests

Jaline Gerardin is Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine, a NICO member, and a member of the Center for Global Health at Northwestern. Her work has contributed to defining stratification metrics for intervention deployment and understanding the intervention mixes needed for malaria elimination across diverse endemic settings. Prior to her appointment at Northwestern, Jaline was the malaria lead at the Institute for Disease Modeling in Seattle, Washington.

In 2007, the global community issued a call to eradicate malaria. Twelve years later, much progress has been made, yet some countries are still struggling to reduce burden, and in others, elimination seems forever out of reach. Is eradication even possible with the currently available set of interventions? If so, how should interventions be combined and tailored to the local context to maximize their impact? And if not, what tools do we need to develop? Mathematical models of malaria transmission have been used to guide policy for decades. Malaria is a complex challenge, and accurately modeling its dynamics requires uniting observations across many disciplines, from entomology to immunology to demography, within a single framework. Our group builds and applies agent-based models of malaria transmission and interventions to help guide global policy to reduce burden and achieve elimination in resource-limited settings.
