Bio


I am a postdoctoral fellow investigating climate drivers of mosquito-borne diseases with Erin Mordecai (Biology), Desiree LaBeaud (School of Medicine) and Eric Lambin (Woods Institute for the Environment). I am interested in the ecology and spatial dynamics of infectious diseases in humans and marine and terrestrial wildlife. A major component of my postdoctoral research is to develop climate-driven predictive models of dengue and chikungunya in Kenya and Ecuador.
