Francesco ChecchiOBE, PhD
Checchi is an epidemiologist whose main expertise is quantitative public health measurement and disease control in crisis (armed conflict, natural disaster, epidemic) settings. He has worked for Medecins Sans Frontieres, the World Health Organization and as a consultant for a variety of other agencies. He has spent several years at the School (2004-2012, 2017-present), and in between led Save the Children's humanitarian health team.
He has mixed experience in research, policy formulation and operational programme delivery in difficult and insecure settings. By mixed he mean diverse...although come to think of it some of it is definitely mixed. He don't have a specific disease focus, though in the past he has done work on malaria, human African trypanosomiasis, tuberculosis, cholera, Ebola, acute malnutrition and vaccines.
