I am primarily interested in environmental determinants of infectious disease. This theme carries through my work in Ecuador that focuses on the impact of roads and disease transmission linking both changes in social structure and ecology. I am extending this theme to Mexico (risks associated with wastewater use and agriculture), Ethiopia (documenting herd protection with respect to sanitation), and Israel (characterizing water and sanitation infrastructure in the Bedouin communities in the Negev).
