Speaker Profile

PhD, Professor, Scripps Research

Biography
Dr. Kristian Andersen is a renowned virologist and infectious disease expert who is currently a professor in the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at Scripps Research in La Jolla, California. He received his PhD in bioinformatics and computational biology from the University of Copenhagen in Denmark, and completed postdoctoral training at the University of Oxford and the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Andersen's research focuses on understanding the evolution and spread of viral pathogens, with a particular emphasis on emerging infectious diseases. He has made significant contributions to our understanding of the Zika virus epidemic, the Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa, and the COVID19 pandemic, among others. His work involves a combination of cutting edge genomic and computational techniques to track the spread of viral pathogens in real-time, and to inform public health efforts to contain and control these diseases.
