Research Interests & Projects

Research Interests & Projects: Infectious Disease Epidemiology, Global Health
I have worked with National datasets including National Health and Nutrition Examination (NHANES) survey to study the mediatory role of physical activity when it comes to the association between vitamin D deficiency and cardiovascular disease risk. Some of my work also focused on perinatal exposure to sexually transmitted diseases including chlamydia and gonorrhea and its adverse effects on maternal and infant health using Vital Statistics data.

Current Research: My research would focus largely on Tuberculosis in third world countries. Over time trends and a concurrent focus on molecular and social epidemiology.
