Manalebish Debalike Asfaw

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.
