I am a population biologist, working at the interface between theoretical models and empirical data. I'm particularly interested in:
- Investigating how the interaction of noise and non-linear density-dependent feedback drive population processes at different scales
- Understanding the spatio-temporal dynamics of infectious disease and how these are affected by control strategies
- Phylodynamics: exploring how pathogen phylogenies are affected by host immunity, transmission bottlenecks and epidemic dynamics — at scales from individual host to population.
- Dynamics of Measles in developed and developing countries; control implications of vaccine refusal
- Spatiotemporal dynamics of Human influenza in the U.S.A.
- Linking within-host and population dynamics of human, equine and avian influenza.
- Exploring epidemiological and evolutionary implications of novel broad spectrum influenza vaccines
- Population dynamics and control of rotavirus
- Synthesizing epidemic dynamics of immunizing infections with the spatiotemporal economic dynamics of vaccination
- New projects on the dynamics and control of HIV, Shigella, typhoid and HFMD.
