I graduated from YSPH with my MPH in Spring 2017 and started the PhD in Fall 2018. My research is split between microbial analysis of Legionella in the environment and statistical modeling of sporadic legionellosis. I am particularly interested in quantifying the fluctuations of Legionella in natural reservoirs after rainfall events and modeling the influence of climate/weather on disease incidence both temporally and spatially. I have previously explored both the role of pneumococcal vaccine on antibiotic resistance and spatial trends of IPD in CT during my masters internship in Weinberger lab.
