Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

I am interested in the intersection between infectious disease and ecology and my current research is on detecting emerging zoonotic pathogens. Zoonotic disease represents a major burden to human health: from the bubonic plague of the middle ages, to the 1918 flu pandemic that infected one third of the world’s population, to the modern Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic which affects 34 million people living today. My current work aims to detect viral spillover events from animals to humans with the hope of eventually understanding the ecology that drives this process and better defining the steps that will be required to stop the emergence of these pathogens. I currently work in Bangladesh, China, and Costa Rica.
