Emmanuelle Kumaran

Digital Epidemiologist – Data Scientist

Emmanuelle joined CGPS in 2022 where she works closely with CGPS stakeholders within the public health community to support and facilitate the use of molecular/genomic epidemiological analysis of infectious disease for surveillance and other public health response activities. Prior to joining CGPS, Emmanuelle worked on the Global Research on Antimicrobial Resistance project at the University of Oxford where her work focused primarily on the global prevalence of drug resistant tuberculosis.

Emmanuelle holds a Master’s in Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and tropical medicine and an undergraduate degree from Imperial College London.
