Manalebish Debalike Asfaw is an assistant professor in the department of Mathematics at Addis Ababa University. She received her Ph.D. in Mathematics from the Addis Ababa University with first-class honour in December 2018. In her dissertation, a novel modelling approach which takes into account both the spatial and temporal effect in the analysis of plant herbivore interactions was used and analysed.
She is a co-investigator of the “Assessing the Impact of Non-pharmaceutical Interventions on the dynamics of COVID-19: A mathematical modelling study in the case of Ethiopia” project funded by Horn of Africa with work experience at two different higher education institutions in Ethiopia as an instructor.
