As an infectious disease epidemiologist, I focus on using epidemiologic research to inform disease prevention and control strategies. I study interventions to control different pathogens including HIV, SARS-CoV-2, and Neisseria meningitidis. My research explores the role that both pharmaceutical (e.g., vaccines) and non-pharmaceutical (e.g., face coverings) interventions play in controlling infectious disease outbreaks. I am particularly interested in how the willingness or hesitancy of the public to use these methods can impact their effectiveness in real-world settings. The goals of my research are to directly inform public health policies.
