My research takes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding infectious diseases, uniting clinical perspectives on disease burden, laboratory work, geospatial/ecological techniques, and field surveys on perceptions and behaviors. Broadly, I aim to identify infectious disease reservoirs and develop efficient strategies to reduce exposure risk and disease burden. However, during more than a decade in epidemiology, I have experience working on a broad spectrum of health concerns, including cancer and other chronic diseases, occupational safety, and pharmacoepidemiology, and have field experience both domestically and in sub-Saharan Africa. I believe that such interdisciplinary thinking and active scientific collaboration is key to solving the complex health challenges confronting the world today.
