Kamaldeen earned his Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics in 2018 from Arizona State University. His dissertation research focused on developing and analyzing compartmental models to assess the impact of temperature variability on malaria transmission dynamics. He then moved to the Institute for Disease Modeling in Seattle as a visiting scholar before joining the Malaria Modeling group at Northwestern University as a Postdoctoral Fellow. During his postdoctoral work, he focused on building an agent-based computational framework for modeling the effect of seasonal malaria chemoprevention in children under 5 years in the Sahel region of Africa. He received his B.Sc in Mathematics from the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria.
