Krti Tallam is an eco-epidemiologist, researching the transmission dynamics of environmental diseases as they relate to climate and anthropogenic stressors. As a U.S. Fulbright Scholar, Krti conducted analyses on the responses of dengue fever to climatic stressors along the coast of the Bay of Bengal, in India. At Stanford, Krti leads multiple computational biology research teams in understanding how machine learning can help us better understand marine disease dynamics. Her thesis involves modeling the influence of Anthropogenic climate change on the parasite-host relationship of estuarine foundation species. She also hosts The Anthropositive Outlook ©, a podcast collection of interdisciplinary conversations in ecology.

Krti is a STEM innovator and a proud first-generation woman of color.
