My research focuses on foodborne illness and infectious disease outbreaks and I have worked on several national groups to prevent foodborne illness, including the CDC's Food Safety Modernization Act Surveillance Working Group. My work also focuses on surveillance, outbreak investigation, and public health preparedness. Prior to academia, I was the supervisor of the Vectorborne and Zoonotic Diseases Unit at the Minnesota Department of Health.
