Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Malaria
  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine

His main research concerns Malaria, Plasmodium falciparum, Environmental health, Immunology and Epidemiology. His Malaria research includes themes of Developing country, Demography, Pediatrics and Public health. Robert W. Snow combines subjects such as Ecology, Vector, Virology, Disease and Socioeconomics with his study of Plasmodium falciparum.

His Environmental health study also includes fields such as

  • Transmission and related Psychological intervention,
  • Malaria control which intersects with area such as Malaria risk. His Immunology study incorporates themes from Global health and Sickle cell trait. His Epidemiology research integrates issues from Cerebral Malaria, El Niño, Gestation, Infant mortality and Risk factor.

His most cited work include:

  • The global distribution of clinical episodes of Plasmodium falciparum malaria (2397 citations)
  • The global distribution of clinical episodes of Plasmodium falciparum malaria (2397 citations)
  • A world malaria map: Plasmodium falciparum endemicity in 2007 (960 citations)

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

Robert W. Snow mainly investigates Malaria, Environmental health, Public health, Plasmodium falciparum and Epidemiology. His Malaria study is concerned with Immunology in general. He interconnects Environmental protection, Malaria risk, Malaria transmission, Malaria control and Developing country in the investigation of issues within Environmental health.

He has included themes like Kenya, Health facility, Health care and Family medicine in his Public health study. The Plasmodium falciparum study combines topics in areas such as Veterinary medicine, Ecology, Risk factor and Virology. His Epidemiology research includes themes of Transmission and Disease.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Malaria (118.53%)
  • Environmental health (49.79%)
  • Public health (49.79%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Malaria (118.53%)
  • Public health (49.79%)
  • Environmental health (49.79%)

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

Robert W. Snow focuses on Malaria, Public health, Environmental health, Psychological intervention and Demography. In the subject of general Malaria, his work in Plasmodium falciparum is often linked to Tanzania, thereby combining diverse domains of study. His Public health research includes elements of Intervention, Under-five, Health facility and Family medicine.

His research in Environmental health intersects with topics in Odds ratio, Health informatics and Observational study. His studies in Psychological intervention integrate themes in fields like Strategic planning, Strategic thinking, Kenya, Dosing and Pediatrics. His Demography study combines topics in areas such as Cross-sectional study, Regression analysis, Sample size determination and Incidence.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Access to emergency hospital care provided by the public sector in sub-Saharan Africa in 2015: a geocoded inventory and spatial analysis (111 citations)
  • Access to emergency hospital care provided by the public sector in sub-Saharan Africa in 2015: a geocoded inventory and spatial analysis (111 citations)
  • The prevalence of Plasmodium falciparum in sub-Saharan Africa since 1900 (88 citations)

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

  • Statistics
  • Internal medicine
  • Malaria

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Malaria, Public health, Environmental health, Health facility and Plasmodium falciparum. His Malaria research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Psychological intervention, Surveillance data and Development economics. His research integrates issues of Tropical medicine, Attendance and Epidemiology in his study of Public health.

He combines subjects such as Bed nets, Pediatrics and Travel time with his study of Environmental health. His Health facility research incorporates elements of Health care and Land use. As a part of the same scientific study, Robert W. Snow usually deals with the Plasmodium falciparum, concentrating on Ecology and frequently concerns with Prevalence, Rural area and Human settlement.
