Research Interests & Projects

My interest is to apply computational skills to public health challenges so that I can develop and apply modeling techniques for infectious and noninfectious diseases, including for viral infections like HIV and HCV, sexually transmission infections and eventually use them for modeling non-communicable diseases that disproportionately affect global health like cancer, cardiovascular disease and others.  Currently, I am working on Markov transition model with Prof.Meza.
