Research Scientist

Mr. Yeromin Mlacha is a Research Scientist in the Environmental Health and Ecological Sciences Department. He graduated from University of Dar es Salaam in 2007 with a BSc in Wildlife Science and Conservation, and obtained an MSc in Biology and Control of Parasites and Disease Vectors, from Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, UK, in 2012. His thesis work focused on “Evaluating the use of anonymized routine health facility-based data as a resource to identify malaria infection clusters in urban Dar es Salaam”. Between 2009-2014 Mr. Mlacha has done extensive field research on the monitoring and evaluation of adult mosquito surveillance tools, and evaluation of an alpha-cypermethrin long-lasting insecticidal net (Veeralin LN) against natural populations of An arabiensis in experimental huts. His current research is focused on Application of Community-Based and Integrated Strategy to reduce malaria disease burden in Rufiji-Tanzania. This study is implemented in collaboration with partners in China, the final goal of the pilot project is to explore appropriate modes and mechanisms to effectively reduce the disease burden of malaria based on the existing local system, which could then be scaled up and used in other regions. Along with his interest on GIS, Mr. Mlacha is conducting spatial, and temporal, analytical methods to evaluate risk of malaria transmission in urban and rural environments.
