Chelsey Goodman


With unique experience working at the Public Health Agency of Canada’s National Microbiology Laboratory (NML), Chelsey Goodman has played a vital role in many of Canada’s global infectious disease prevention and response initiatives, including the 2014 Ebola outbreak, the 2009 H1N1 avian flu pandemic, the 2008 SARS pandemic, and bio-terrorism surveillance at the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Chelsey is one of a small number of responders to experience real-time pandemic activation, as well as play a role in response and subsequent mitigation of global impacts.  Her knowledge of how disease outbreaks occur and what a real-time Emergency Operations Center can do is based on first person experience acting in the capacity of the NML’s Emergency Operations Chief.

As well as her real world scientific data-analysis experience, Chelsey is a highly skilled Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) practitioner and a passionate educator.
