Research Interests & Projects

Research Interests & Projects: My research interests include infectious disease epidemiology, spatial analysis, and field epidemiology. My background includes spatial analysis of the association between environmental factors and disease-specific mortality.

Current Research: I am currently working on projects to better understand immunity against SARS-CoV-2 and endemic coronavirus in children. I also am working on a project to examine how influenza exposures early in life affect immunity to influenza over time.
