Kasim Allel

BSc, MA, MSc, PhD

Researcher in Health Economics

Kasim joined the Health Economics Research Centre (HERC) as a researcher in April 2024. He focuses on developing mathematical and health-economic models to study antimicrobial resistance (AMR) transmission in low- and middle-income countries.

His work examines the influence of socioeconomic, environmental, and spatial factors on AMR transmission and its subsequent health and economic impacts. He is keen on integrating transmission modelling into health-economic evaluations to enhance surveillance and intervention strategies applicable to AMR and a broader group of infectious diseases.

Before HERC, Kasim was at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, where he analysed the heightened burden of AMR in bloodstream infection patients and evaluated interventions to mitigate health and economic impacts in under-resourced settings. He also served as a consultant for the WHO at University College London, working on projects related to tuberculosis spread modelling, rapid testing technologies, and treatment strategies for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis.

Prior to working on completing his PhD in Infectious Diseases from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Kasim obtained a MSc in Health Economics and Decision Science from University College London, and an MA in Economics and a BSc in Engineering awarded in Chile.
