Thomas P. Van Boeckel
Thomas Van Boeckel is a Visiting Fellow based at ETH Zürich, Switzerland.
Dr. Van Boeckel and his team focus on mapping the global trends in antimicrobial use and resistance (AMR) in farm animals, fish, and humans. They use computational approaches to assemble large databases (resistancebank.org), track trends in AMR, and optimally allocate surveillance resources in low- and middle-income countries.
Before joining ETH, Dr. Van Boeckel was a Fulbright Research Scholar at Princeton University, and originally received his PhD in Spatial Ecology and Epidemiology from the Free University of Brussels (ULB). His research interests include antimicrobial resistance, spatial epidemiology, disease mapping, animal production, and One Health.
