Trevon Fuller's CV


I am a research scientist at the IoES with a background in animal-borne diseases, biodiversity, conservation, evolutionary biology, Geographic Information Systems, and statistics. From 2009-2014, I worked on studies of the spillover of zoonotic influenza from livestock and wildlife to humans in the US, Cameroon, and Egypt as part of NIH Fogarty and NIAID multisite surveillance programs. From 2013-2017, I worked on biodiversity and climate change in Cameroon and Gabon as part of an NSF PIRE program. I was responsible for analyzing the effects of climate change on agriculture and economic drivers of deforestation. From 2016-2018, I co-led a study supported by the Panamerican Health Organization on the effect of novel arboviruses on neurological diseases in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. From 2018-2019 I worked as a postdoc for the UCLA Democratic Republic of Congo Health Research and Training Program, helping plan microcensus activities and polio vaccination campaigns. I am currently based at the Infectious Diseases Department, Hospital Federal dos Servidores do Estado in Rio de Janeiro working on studies of antiretrovirals in pregnant women.
