Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine

His primary scientific interests are in Malaria, Ecology, Plasmodium falciparum, Demography and Global health. As a part of the same scientific study, David L. Smith usually deals with the Malaria, concentrating on Environmental health and frequently concerns with Disease. His Ecology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cartography, Basic reproduction number and Dengue fever.

His Plasmodium falciparum study incorporates themes from Biological dispersal and Virology. His Demography research includes themes of Life expectancy, Epidemiology, Incidence and Biting. David L. Smith has researched Global health in several fields, including Indicator value, Scale and Health policy.

His most cited work include:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 328 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2465 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex specific mortality for 264 causes of death, 1980–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2443 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

David L. Smith mainly focuses on Malaria, Environmental health, Ecology, Plasmodium falciparum and Public health. His Malaria research includes elements of Demography and Incidence. His Environmental health research incorporates elements of Transmission, Outbreak, Disease burden and Dengue fever.

When carried out as part of a general Ecology research project, his work on Aedes aegypti is frequently linked to work in Context, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Virology and Plasmodium falciparum. His Immunology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Global health and Epidemiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Malaria (56.32%)
  • Environmental health (21.15%)
  • Ecology (25.98%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Malaria (56.32%)
  • Environmental health (21.15%)
  • Public health (19.54%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His scientific interests lie mostly in Malaria, Environmental health, Public health, Disease and Demography. His Plasmodium falciparum, Malaria transmission and Indoor residual spraying study in the realm of Malaria connects with subjects such as Psychological intervention. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Incidence, Dengue virus, Dengue fever, Vaccination and Disease burden.

His Public health study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Development economics and Hygiene. His study in Disease is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epidemiology and Econometrics. His Demography research integrates issues from Global health and Life expectancy.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 354 diseases and injuries for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017 (2508 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 328 diseases and injuries for 195 countries, 1990–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2465 citations)
  • Global, regional, and national age-sex specific mortality for 264 causes of death, 1980–2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (2443 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Ecology
  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine

David L. Smith mostly deals with Demography, Malaria, Global health, Epidemiology and Incidence. His work deals with themes such as Population density, Life expectancy, Outbreak and Yellow Fever Virus Infection, which intersect with Demography. His Life expectancy study combines topics in areas such as Disease burden, Cause of death and Gerontology.

His Malaria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transmission and Toxicology. His Global health study incorporates themes from Mortality rate, Verbal autopsy and Indicator value. His study in Epidemiology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dengue virus, Dengue fever and Disease.
