Speaker Bio: Dr. Nick Ogden is a UK-trained veterinarian with a doctorate in vector-borne disease ecology and post-doctoral training in disease modelling. He is a senior research scientist and Director of the Public Health Risk Sciences division within the National Microbiology Laboratory of the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), normally focusing on assessing disease risk through the study of ecology, epidemiology and genetic diversity of vectors and zoonotic and vector-borne micro-organisms. A key component of his work is assessing the impacts of climate change on zoonoses and vector-borne diseases and developing tools for public health adaptation. Most recently, he has led PHAC’s COVID-19 modelling and emerging science teams.
Organizers: Dr. Huaiping Zhu (York University), Dr. Hélène Carabin (Université de Montréal), Dr. Mark Lewis (University of Alberta), Dr. Arne Ruckert (University of Ottawa), and Natasha Ketter (York University)
