- Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Welcome Wami is a Joep Lange Fellow at AIGHD. He has a strong interest in global health research, particularly in the area of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in Africa. As a researcher, he works closely with Dr. Constance Schultsz (AIGHD) and the Joep Lange Chair holder Catherine Kyobutungi (African Population and Health Research Centre, Kenya) to establish a research program on chronic disease management as a concept in primary health care to strengthen the responsiveness of the health system to the management of both infectious and non-infectious diseases in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This entails conducting research on various aspects of chronic disease management in Kenya. He graduated with a Master’s degree in Biostatistics from Center for Statistics, Hasselt University, Belgium. He holds a PhD in statistical modeling and management of infectious diseases in Africa from the University of Edinburgh, UK. His previous experience as a Statistical Research Associate and Consultant involved delivering statistical analysis and providing support in the use of statistics for decision making in several areas of public health.
