Jamie Caldwell is currently a postdoctoral fellow in the Mordecai lab at Stanford University. She is investigating how climate patterns affect moquito-borne disease risk (e.g., dengue, zika, and chikungunya) for children in Kenya and Ecuador .
She also continues to collaborate with the Donahue lab on a NASA Research Opportunity in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) grant (2017-2021) to develop forecasting models of coral disease outbreaks for Hawaii, US-affiliated islands in the Pacific Ocean, and the Great Barrier Reef (see FORE-C project page).
For Jamie’s PhD, she studied the spread of coral disease across the Hawaiian archipelago where she examined disease progression and transmission across a variety of spatial scales. Jamie was a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellow and worked closely with the Centers for Ocean Science Education Excellence – Island Earth during her dissertation.
