An epidemiologist with more than eight years of experience in public health research, Jaclyn Guerrero currently serves as the associate director of product, policy and partnerships at Metabiota. During her five-plus years at the company, she has focused on research and development efforts for risk analysis tools and product and market development.

Guerrero works to quantify public sentiment on infectious diseases and assess both the macroeconomic and company-specific impacts of these events. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, she is currently assessing market needs to prepare for and respond to epidemics and pandemics to ensure adequate protection and coverage against these events.

“Looking ahead, I hope to see further innovation for emerging risk classes, like epidemic and pandemic risk, with emphasis on risks that can cause catastrophic damages to livelihoods and economies,” she says. “This year has shown me how fast we can adjust to new challenges. This has helped me in my career to take more chances and continue to push myself to redefine what is challenging.”
