Dr. Pandey is a Research Scientist in the Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis at the Yale School of Public Health. He graduated with a BSc (Hons) degree in Mathematics from Ramjas College, Delhi University, and an MSc degree in Applied Mathematics from the Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee. He obtained his Ph.D. in Mathematics at Clemson University. In his research, Dr. Pandey develops data-driven mathematical models of infectious diseases to improve our understanding of the transmission dynamics, evaluate tools and strategies for disease control, inform public health policies, and provide tools for public health decision making. His current research focuses on the understanding impact of socio-political conflicts on public health response amidst disease outbreaks and evaluating control interventions for HIV and neglected tropical diseases such as sleeping-sickness.
