Professor of Global Public Health
My research focus is in water- and vectorborne infectious disease epidemiology with particular interest environmental determinants of infectious diseases. Over the past 15 years, I have built a research platform in Ecuador focusing on how changes in the social and natural environment affect the epidemiology of pathogens causing diarrheal diseases, antibiotic resistance and dengue. More recently, I have been conducting water and sanitation research in the Bedouin communities in Israel, slum communities in Ethiopia, and in the Mezquital Valley in Mexico.
