Kathryn Berger

Senior Data Scientist
Kathryn brings a background in disease ecology, remote sensing, ecological modelling and geospatial analysis to the Agrimetrics analytical team.

Most recently, she was employed as a Research Associate in Disease Mapping at the University of Cambridge, where her work focused on the systematic identification of critical gaps in animal influenza virus surveillance and the development of animal influenza risk maps.

In 2014, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship in disease ecology at the University of Calgary (Canada) on the potential impact of climate change on the distribution of disease vectors and the development of spatially explicit models to inform both risk assessment and vector-borne disease surveillance systems.

She holds a BSc in Microbiology from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst (USA), a MSc in Natural Resources from the University of New Hampshire (USA) and a PhD in Environmental Science from the University of Rhode Island (USA) where she worked on the development of Lyme disease risk models based on microclimatic indices.

Outside of work Kathryn enjoys travelling, exploring the outdoors, and spending time with friends and family.
