Research Interests

I conduct medical geography/ spatial epidemiology research that uses geographic information systems, satellite remote sensing, and spatial modeling techniques. Most of my research has been on infectious diseases in the developing world including cholera, dysentery (shigellosis), visceral leishmaniasis (kala-azar), dengue fever, avian influenza, HIV, malaria, and acute lower respiratory infection. I also conduct research that looks at neighborhood-level effects on health and disease. For more information please see the Spatial Health Research Group.
