Biography

I am interested in the mathematical modeling of infectious diseases. Using spatial statistical techniques to incorporate big data such as weather and climate, geographical features like proximity to water, and human travel patterns, I hope to better predict the spread and virulence of disease outbreaks as well as how to best utilize resources to prevent and/or minimize impact. The goals of my research and career are to develop mathematical models that accurately predict infection rates and the spread of diseases so that prevention and treatment efforts can be more focused, effective, and reduce morbidity and mortality.
