GIS centre for health, Division of Data, Analytics and Delivery for Impact, World Health Organization, Geneva, Switzerland

Dr Anna Pintor completed her Bachelor of  Honours on venomous snake physiology and a PhD on how reptile physiology affects their biogeography. After a postdoc on conservation of Australian fauna & flora, she returned to the field of venomous snake biology when joining the WHO GIS team on the snakebite project in late 2020. Anna has been passionate about snake conservation and snake-human conflict mitigation since she was a child and increasingly started integrating GIS into her research throughout her career, starting with the effects of physiology on species' distributions limits during he PhD, followed by big-data analyses of species’ habitat suitability during her post-doc, and finally leading to the combination of GIS with her passion for snakes during her work with WHO.
