Research Interests

I have broad theoretical and practical knowledge in the ecology and evolution of infectious
disease, epidemiology, mathematical modeling, and public health. I use
epidemiological, ecological, and evolutionary data to develop disease transmission models
that can be used to examine the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of public <>/brhealth interventions in order to make informed decisions regarding public health policy.
