Research Interests

Transmission dynamics; episodic risk/behavioral volatility; phylodynamics; network transmission models; HIV; poliovirus; vaccination strategies.

Current Research

My current research focuses primarily on forming a better understanding of threats to global polio eradication efforts, with a particular focus on what combinations of vaccination programs and local conditions can create the potential for sustained silent transmission. I am also working on HIV modeling research that seeks to clarify the ways in which various behavioral patterns can interact with differential transmissibility over the course of infection to make control easier or more difficult.
