About this workshop:
Researchers and One Health professionals who deal with data generation, data integration and data analysis tasks, for example during disease surveillance, outbreak investigation, or risk assessments, need to be continuously informed about new digital solutions that support these activities and also promote the One Health -compliant exchange of information across sectors.
Software Fair Online Workshop- 7th June 2021
The Online Software Fair will allow participants to get informed on up to 15 selected innovative digital solutions. It will also provide members of all interested OHEJP projects, a platform to present their new tools/software in greater detail compared to a classical conference presentation setup.
Anybody with interest in One Health-related digital applications. PhD students and early career researchers are highly welcome.
How to attend
Dr. Kyrre Kausrud is an evolutionary ecologist specializing in the dynamics and evolution of outbreak or invasive systems, mostly with an element of climate forcing. Starting before his 2010 PhD at the University of Oslo, this has focused on a variety of organisms, mostly class A bioagents such as Bacillus anthracis and Yersinia pestis, insect pests such as locusts and bark beetles, but also lemmings and other rodent cycles, as well as salmon, foodborne diseases, SARS-CoV-2 and other systems as an epidemiologist at the Norwegian Veterinary Institute.
His fieldwork experience includes having led groups in Africa, Central Asia, Eastern Europe and the Arctic, as well as UN peacekeeping operations. His main working tools involve statistical and mathematical modelling together with science communication and fieldwork, with about 50 publications so far, which have been cited about 2400 times. He is also an appointed member of the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food and Environment since 2018, and is the leader of the science communication NGO ARCRA.
His current main interests include the evolution of virulence and transmission strategies in pathogens, emerging threats and food security in a climate perspective.
Clémence Koren completed a Bachelor in Biology in France, followed by a Master in Arctic Ecology in Norway. Her Master’s thesis was focused on the population dynamics of a bird species community in the low-Arctic tundra, in relation to climate change. In addition to this academic background, she has a personal interest in design, visual communication and web development.
She started working in late 2020 at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, as an advisor in data visualisation and web development. She works principally on the One Health NOVA and MATRIX projects where she is developing web-based dashboards for the surveillance of gastro-intestinal infections such as the ones linked to Campylobacter and Listeria. Her work focuses on facilitating the transmission of data and model results to partner organisations (veterinary institute and food safety authorities) by crafting informative and user-friendly platforms where the quality of the user’s experience is at the core of the design.
