I’m an infectious disease epidemiologist interested in understanding malaria transmission dynamics across different endemic settings and the implications for developing and implementing control and elimination strategies. My work integrates traditional epidemiologic methods with molecular biology, GIS and spatial sciences, and ecology across field sites in central and southern Africa. The overarching aim is to understand how malaria impacts communities and inform policies to implement the most efficient package of interventions to reduce the burden of malaria and eliminate it where feasible.
