Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Statistics
  • Public health
  • Malaria

His scientific interests lie mostly in Environmental health, Helminthiasis, Veterinary medicine, Immunology and Malaria. His work carried out in the field of Environmental health brings together such families of science as Epidemiology, Deworming, Hookworm Infections, Public health and Risk factor. The various areas that Simon Brooker examines in his Helminthiasis study include Developing country, Ascaris lumbricoides and Disease burden.

His Disease burden research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Years of potential life lost and Communicable disease. His research integrates issues of Global health and Neglected tropical diseases in his study of Immunology. His work on Plasmodium falciparum as part of general Malaria research is often related to Placebo and Placebo-controlled study, thus linking different fields of science.

His most cited work include:

  • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (5887 citations)
  • Years lived with disability (YLDs) for 1160 sequelae of 289 diseases and injuries 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (4886 citations)
  • Soil-transmitted helminth infections: ascariasis, trichuriasis, and hookworm (1601 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Environmental health, Malaria, Veterinary medicine, Immunology and Public health. His research in Environmental health intersects with topics in Psychological intervention, Sanitation, Epidemiology, Deworming and Helminthiasis. His Helminthiasis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Schistosomiasis and Schistosoma haematobium.

He combines subjects such as Intervention, Mosquito net, Pediatrics and Cross-sectional study with his study of Malaria. His studies in Veterinary medicine integrate themes in fields like Neglected tropical diseases, Tropical medicine, Trichuris trichiura, Ascaris lumbricoides and Prevalence. Simon Brooker interconnects Developing country, Focus group and Randomized controlled trial in the investigation of issues within Public health.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (54.85%)
  • Malaria (37.95%)
  • Veterinary medicine (32.41%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Environmental health (54.85%)
  • Malaria (37.95%)
  • Deworming (14.96%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Environmental health, Malaria, Deworming, Veterinary medicine and Neglected tropical diseases. His Environmental health study incorporates themes from Sanitation, Podoconiosis, Cross-sectional study, Public health and Mass drug administration. His biological study focuses on Plasmodium falciparum.

His Deworming research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Trichuris trichiura, Ascaris lumbricoides, Helminthiasis and Hookworm infection. His Veterinary medicine study combines topics in areas such as Cost–benefit analysis, Epidemiology and Mass deworming. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Neglected tropical diseases, Disease surveillance is strongly linked to Global health.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Global Trachoma Mapping Project: Methodology of a 34-Country Population-Based Study (121 citations)
  • Multi-parallel qPCR provides increased sensitivity and diagnostic breadth for gastrointestinal parasites of humans: field-based inferences on the impact of mass deworming (95 citations)
  • Should the Goal for the Treatment of Soil Transmitted Helminth (STH) Infections Be Changed from Morbidity Control in Children to Community-Wide Transmission Elimination? (80 citations)
