My research interests lie primarily in the area of emerging infectious diseases. I have worked to develop surveillance systems for the detection of emerging pathogens, developed hospital and practice–based cohorts to define infectious disease burden and epidemiology, and performed a number of validation studies to limit biases in estimation of incidence rates. My current work focuses largely on the epidemiology of chronic liver disease with an emphasis on liver disease due to hepatitis C infection.
