Hi! I’m Myo Minn Oo, Postdoctoral Fellow at Swiss TPH, and a Senior Research Fellow at the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research. In this role, I supports integrated research portfolio and quality objectives of the institute by leading a malaria control unit that conducts health system research and epidemiological studies including a malaria indicator survey to gain insight into the malaria dynamics, epidemiology, health system preparedness, and resistance monitoring in Papua New Guinea.

In my PhD research, I examined the impact of health insurance and documentation status on migrants’ clinical and self-reported health outcomes with the support of an NIH US grant and another local governmental grant. This work has contributed to the migrant-related health policy decision-making at the national level in Thailand. Prior to my PhD role, I worked for a non-profit organization called The Union, caring for people living with HIV/AIDS and conducting operational research both as an investigator and a mentor.

I am passionate about epidemiology, biostatistics, and data science. I am also interested in modeling, research capacity building in LMIC. I’m from Myanmar but I currently live in Goroka, Papua New Guinea with my wife.

If you’d like to learn more about what I do, and how to use R effectively, you might enjoy one of these:

Outside of work, I love to watch anime series and read books. Some anime series that constantly inspires and leave a deep impression include one piece, attack on titan, ranking of kings, and naruto. A few books that tempt me to read repeatedly are the alchemist (Paulo Coelho), twelve rules of life (Jordan B. Peterson), and queed (Henry S. Harrison).
