Dr Arsenii Alenichev
Arsenii is an early career postdoctoral researcher with the Oxford-Johns Hopkins Global Infectious Disease Ethics Collaborative (GLIDE), funded by a Wellcome Humanities and Social Science Award. He is interested in empirical and transdisciplinary bioethics, with a specific focus on bottom-up and people-centred evaluation of public health interventions.
Having a background in medical anthropology, bioethics and biology, Arsenii obtained a PhD degree in 2020 as part of the EU–funded Erasmus Mundus Trans Global Health Programme. His doctoral research centred on the 2014 Ebola Outbreak in West Africa, illuminating power imbalances and patterns of precarity experienced in local communities hosting an Ebola vaccine trial, offering critical case studies for contemporary global health bioethics.
Before becoming a GLIDE fellow, Arsenii was a NIH Fogarty International Bioethics trainee and worked at the University of Amsterdam, University of Barcelona, and the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp.
