People Dr. Nuno Faria
Associate, Oxford Martin Programme on Pandemic Genomics
Nuno Faria studied medical biology and computational biology in the Netherlands and Belgium before becoming a Research Lecturer at the Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, UK. In 2017, he became a Sir Henry Dale Fellow of the Wellcome Trust and Royal Society, UK.
His research focusses on investigating the evolutionary dynamics of viral pathogens by integrating real-time genomic, ecological, surveillance and mobility data. He is particularly interested in understanding what drives the ignition and sustained spread of emergent infectious diseases, such as zika, yellow fever, chikungunya, ebola, influenza and HIV.
