Benjamin J. Blamo, M.Eng., PhD Cand.
I am a Chemical Engineer with focus in Environmental Toxicology. I have worked in both the private and government sectors of Liberia in key leadership roles, from serving as the health sector focal point for chemical safety to being the laboratory manager of the Environmental Health Laboratory (EHL), National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL). Additionally, I am proud of my significant contributions as a leader, teacher, and researcher to the education system of Liberia.
My goal is to help develop the scientific research capacity of Liberia to an internationally recognizable standard, especially in the area of environment health and toxicology. Liberia has been affected not only by economic hardship and the civil wars, but also by climate change and industrial activities that contaminate the ecosystem of the country. It is my belief that evidence from scientific research can be used to address the increased burden of diseases from the environment.
Laura Skrip, PhD, MPH
I am a quantitative epidemiologist who develops and implements behavior-epidemiologic transmission models to evaluate the dynamics of and interventions against emerging infectious diseases in humanitarian settings. It is my goal to generate relevant and informed evidence that can guide public health decision-making in complex emergencies. I am a passionate educator with a long history of teaching math, science, and prevention programming to students of all ages. Likewise, I am an avid learner who continues to grow, in part through the collaborations, mentorships, and friendships that have developed out of field epidemiology experiences across the globe.
Hajah Kenneh, MPH
I am a Biologist by training and a Master of Public Health (MPH) graduate with emphasis in Applied Epidemiology. My research interests include conducting studies on infectious diseases, using statistical or mathematical modeling to assess the rate of transmission within a particular population and identifying the group within the population that is at the highest risk of infection.
My research goal is to strengthen my capacity in quantitative research methods to aid policymakers in making informed decisions as it relates to tackling public health issues. I am very passionate about exploring new ideas and learning new concepts in Applied Epidemiology, Quantitative Methods in Public Health Research, and Mathematical Modeling.
Snoyonoh T. Barcon, MPH Cand.
I am an innovative aspiring epidemiologist candidate and an educator. My goal is to contribute meaningfully to improving health and preventing and controlling diseases through research. I believe everyone deserves access to good quality health care and education. I also believe that research provides policymakers with much insight in developing well-guided policies which is essential to attaining quality health and education.
I seek an environment that allows me to continue learning and developing myself professionally. Over time I have served as enumerator, teacher at the college and high school levels teaching basic biology, chemistry, health and wellbeing, research, and ecology courses. I have also been a part of developing a humanitarian organization working to empower women and girls in improving their health and hygiene.
