Teresita Suarez Noguez

EPIC Post-doctoral Research Fellow


With a research background in physics, Teresita has moved to epidemiology to develop mathematical models that simulate animal disease outbreaks (such as Avian Influenza and African Swine Fever), to provide policymakers with emergency scientific advice. She is currently a research fellow at the University of Edinburgh and the Global Academy of Agriculture and Food Security working with EPIC (Scottish Government’s Centre for Expertise in Animal Disease Outbreaks).

She joined the University of Edinburgh in 2018 as a postdoctoral researcher in theoretical and computational astrophysics, where she worked doing mathematical and statistical modelling of physical systems to predict observational signatures from the early universe. She received her bachelor’s degree in physics from Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) and PhD in astrophysics from University College London.
