Dr. Wirichada is Associate Professor in the Department of Tropical Hygiene and honorary visiting research fellow at Nuffield Department of Medicine, University of Oxford, UK. She received her B.Sc. in MORSE (Mathematics, Operational Research, Statistics, and Economics) from University of Warwick, United Kingdom. She has an M.Sc. in Applied Statistics from University of Oxford and Ph.D. in Infectious Diseases from University of Liverpool, United Kingdom. She teaches graduate students and supervises several Masters and Ph.D. students from both Tropical Medicine and Biomedical and Health Informatics courses at Mahidol University, as well as Master students in International Health and Tropical Medicine at University of Oxford.



Dr. Wirichada’s expertise include biostatistics, mathematical modeling, data management, and data mining. Her primary research focuses on the mathematical modelling of neglected diseases, with zoonotic diseases being a particular interest. She is very interested in combining field surveys with mathematical modelling to gain insights into specific health issues and to find practical and sustainable solutions for community health by engaging health policy decision makers and considering the health economic aspect in those recommendations.
