About me

I am a theoretical/computational/mathematical/statistical disease modeler/analyst. I focus on human-related diseases (HIV, influenza, and currently COVID-19) and some wildlife diseases (canine rabies), especially in forecasting epidemic outbreaks, retrospective analysis of the evolution of infectious diseases and intervention strategies/policies for disease control. I work at the interface between statistics, disease ecology and mathematical epidemiology; developing new methods that appropriately account for uncertainties and link statistical summaries and estimates with meaningful ecological and epidemiological parameters; and analyzing the effects of policy changes on disease control.
