We are a team of passionate quantitative scientists whose research addresses epidemiological questions while accounting for social, economic, and political characteristics of our study populations. We also develop mathematical and statistical methods to support other groups in accomplishing their research goals.
Research Objectives of Lab:
To develop and implement mathematical models to address contextually relevant research questions defined by programmatic and community-level stakeholders
To provide a resource hub for quantitative science support for researchers at the University of Liberia and across all health sectors (human, animal, environment) of Liberia
To contribute to development and implementation of institutional best practices for data management and effective sharing of quantitative research products
To investigate approaches to enhancing quantitative research capacity among public health researchers and practitioners in Liberia
Figure It Out:
A mobile application to encourage use of quantitative research findings by frontline health workers
This multi-phase project is currently conducting usability testing of a mobile application prototype. The app (called Figure It Out) is intended to increase awareness of and promote skills-building related to quantitative research utilization through a ‘choose your own path’ scenario-based game approach.

Digital Equity: Achieving MPH Core Competencies for Biostatistics in Liberia
The MPH program is setting high standards for its students in terms of computer-based statistical analyses, data management, and quantitative evidence synthesis from online sources. To ensure that students have an enabling environment to succeed in achieving core competencies, we are researching barriers and facilitators to digital learning among public health students and workers in Liberia.
Heterogeneity in COVID-19 Vaccination Coverage: Modeling to Inform EPI Campaigns with Limited Access and High Hesitancy
A country-level, county-stratified dynamic compartmental model is under development to investigate how smoothing out the heterogeneous vaccination coverage in Liberia could shorten the epidemic in Liberia and could lead to reduced morbidity and mortality due to COVID-19.
We are eager to have students join our lab as Research Assistants or Research Associates. To learn more about our work or to get involved, please contact Dr. Skrip at
