Kimberly Mihayo

Research Officer

Harvard University recent graduate Kimberly Mihayo holds a degree in History of Science she obtained in 2015, and her coursework focused on global health and health policy. She has a diverse experience in areas of global health, and is passionate about studying the biological, epidemiological, historical and social determinants of infectious diseases.

Kimberly’s interest in global health began in 2013 when she spent time interning at a HIV & TB hospital in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, as part of a Harvard undergraduate research fellowship. Here, she developed insights on the intersection between social behaviors and the spread of infectious diseases in society. Her coursework in global health allowed her to supplement her experience in the field, with a framework for understanding health, and the spread of diseases.

Currently, she is working on a Vectorworks funded project, seeking to understand the drivers and magnitude of residual malaria transmission in Zanzibar. The study is designed to investigate residual malaria from an entomological and human behavioral lens, in order to understand how residual transmission occurs. Kimberly will be involved in both (entomology & human behavioral) components of the study, and will work closely with the study team to support the development, implementation and completion of the study in Zanzibar
