Assistant Professor Atina Husnayain

Atina Husnayain is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Public Health, Monash University, Indonesia. She holds a Ph.D. in biomedical informatics (2022) from the Graduate Institute of Biomedical Informatics (GIBI), College of Medical Science and Technology, Taipei Medical University. Previously, she obtained her master's degree in Public Health (2018) from Universitas Gadjah Mada and her bachelor's degree in Public Health (2015) from Universitas Airlangga.

Her research focused on digital epidemiology, information technology-based surveillance, spatial epidemiology, and regression machine learning. During her Ph.D., she worked on infodemiology studies in applying search engine query data for COVID-19 time series prediction. In her research, she collaborated with Professors from Taipei Medical University, Taiwan, MSUIligan Institute of Technology, Philippines, and Soongsil University, Republic of Korea. Studies were funded by research grants from the Taiwan Ministry of Science and Technology, the Taiwan Ministry of Education, and the Korean government and were published in the International Journal of Infectious Disease (IF: 12.074), Journal of Medical Internet Research (IF: 7.08), PLoS ONE (IF: 3.752), JMIR Medical Informatics (IF: 3.43), and International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IF: 3.39).

Before pursuing her Ph.D., she was a research assistant and teaching assistant at the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology, and Population Health, and also at the Department of Health Policy, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. She taught courses related to epidemiology, biostatistics, spatial epidemiology, and research methodology. Besides, she was also involved in various research activities including designing information systems and spatial analysis of dengue in Yogyakarta and analyzing BPJS sample data.
