Bio

I am a research associate in the Infectious Disease Dynamics group in the Department of Epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. I am interested in characterizing the spatiotemporal dynamics of infectious diseases, improving surveillance system design, and understanding the effects of measurement biases on epidemiological inference. The tools I use to answer these questions include: digital health-associated and behavioral data sources, statistical and mathematical models, and interdisciplinary social, ecological, and epidemiological approaches. My research in the ID Dynamics group focuses on mapping the global disease burden of cholera and optimizing the allocation of cholera vaccines. I completed my PhD in Dr. Shweta Bansal’s lab at Georgetown University in 2017. My dissertation investigated the ability for medical claims to enhance influenza surveillance design and to characterize spatial and age patterns in influenza epidemiology.
