Dr. Stanaway received his PhD in Epidemiology from the University of Washington and his MPH from the University of Arizona. He is Assistant Professor at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, where he is part of the research team for the landmark Global Burden of Disease study. In this role, he has modeled morbidity and mortality from enteric diseases, neglected tropical diseases, and environmental risk factors. His research focuses on macro-epidemiology with a special interest in understanding connections between the physical environment and the spatiotemporal distribution of disease.

Research Interests

Dr. Stanaway's current research lies primarily in descriptive epidemiology and burden estimation, with a focus on enteric infections (e.g. typhoid, paratyphoid, and iNTS), and environmental risk factors (e.g. temperature and air pollution).
