Bio


Research Area: Health Policy

I develop computational models to improve decision-making in healthcare. Specifically, I utilize complex networks, machine learning, data analytics, and economic modeling in my methodology. Applications include emerging, zoonotic, neglected, and sexually transmitted communicable infectious diseases that pose a risk as a result of naturally occurring emergence or biological attack.
