Personal profile


I teach Spatial Epidemiology (PATH/GGIS 560) each fall. This course is a graduate-level course with a hands-on component with the goal of teaching students to identify the causes of health disparities across time and locations. I use real-life examples from public, animal, and environmental health.


Research Interests

My laboratory focuses on understanding the distribution and clustering of diseases at the population level.

We use spatial and conventional modeling approaches to identify infection risk factors to aid public health authorities in developing disease prevention programs.

My laboratory also conducts research studies that evaluate the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance in commensal and pathogenic bacteria of humans and animals.
