Research Interests

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington, appointed within the Department of Health Metrics Sciences and affiliated with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation. My academic interest is applying mathematical models to problems related to public health and health policy. Currently, I build computational tools to assist policy makers with planning strategic decisions for eliminating and controlling malaria. I work with David L. Smith's research team at IHME.

Current Projects

  • Bioko Island Malaria Elimination Program
  • Characterizing Spatial Uncertainty for Policy
  • Human Mobility Models

Previous Projects

As a PhD student in the field of Physics at Cornell University, I worked on several projects related to complex networks. One set of projects focused on network epidemiology. Another set of projects focused on data-driven explorations of publishing practices in the scientific community.

  • Infectious Disease Dynamics on Networks
  • Network Assembly of Scientific Communities
  • Measuring Plagiarism on arXiv


Code for Simulations

I am committed to sharing any and all research-related code. I have developed a few different scripts for simulating disease outbreaks on networks of social contacts.
