Dr. Basta is an infectious disease epidemiologist, specializing in implementing complex studies in often challenging contexts to generate critical evidence needed to optimize disease prevention. By conducting biological/clinical and behavioural research across a spectrum of globally important diseases, she aims to 1) maximize the impact of vaccines and immunization programs, 2) increase vaccine awareness, acceptance, and uptake, and 3) advance our understanding of infectious disease transmission dynamics to tailor prevention strategies. Her research is designed to directly inform public health policy. Dr. Basta’s areas of expertise include a broad range of methods and approaches in infectious disease epidemiology and the epidemiology of vaccines. She has expertise in evaluating the impact of disease prevention efforts including vaccination, seroepidemiology, epidemiologic methods and design of epidemiologic studies including population-based studies, developing research protocols, designing data collection tools, and collecting data from clinical/biological and behavioural studies to provide evidence for disease prevention and control.
