Dr Salje is a lecturer in the Department of Genetics where he heads the Pathogen Dynamics Group.

He is also an adjunct Assistant Professor within the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Before coming to Cambridge, Dr Salje worked at Institut Pasteur in Paris and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

Prior to starting his research career, Dr Salje worked in investment banking in London. He has degrees in biochemistry from Oxford University, biostatistics from Johns Hopkins, and epidemiology also from Johns Hopkins.

Dr Salje works on the spread of infectious diseases. He uses mathematical, computational and field research to help our understanding of how pathogens spread in populations, to assess control efforts and support policymaking. This includes working with a diverse range of datasets including epidemiological, genomic, serological and behavioural data.

He works closely with an established network of collaborators across laboratories, field-based epidemiologists, hospitals and public health agencies. Much of his work is in resource-poor settings, especially in Asia. He has a particular interest in the dynamics of arboviruses such as Dengue, Zika and Chikungunya viruses.
