My lab's research centers on
- human influenza epidemiology and evolution - we run a range of field and clinical studies centered on questions in tropical influenza epidemiology, and we use methods in computational epidemiology to analyze data coming our of these studies. Our group works at the interface of field studies, theoretical epidemiology, and statistical fitting of epidemiological models to field data.
- evaluating population-level malaria treatment strategies with individual-based microsimulation models
- phylogenetic analysis of avian influenza evolution in southern Vietnam
- economic epidemiology of avian influenza
- evaluating population-level efficacy of a potential dengue vaccine with mathematical models
Broad interests include: seroepidemiology, participatory epidemiology, evolutionary epidemiology, economic epidemiology, evaluation of treatment strategies, drug-resistance evolution, immune-escape evolution, niche construction.
