Personal profile

Research Interests

My research focuses on epidemiology, specifically the mathematical and statistical modeling of disease, with an emphasis on control. I am particularly interested in the ways that data can be used for real-time response to disease.


I teach Principles and Methods of Epidemiology, PATH 517, every fall. I also lead the discussion-based Epidemiology/Parasitology Seminar, PATH 527, most springs, with a changing topic each semester. I co-facilitating a new course on Global One Health: Infectious Diseases, being held in Fall 2019 under PATH 494. I am also available for independent studies related to epidemiology and disease modeling.
