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.
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.
