My research interests are in applied mathematics,
mathematical modeling, ecology and epidemiology.
I've worked on multi-host models for exotic species invasion
and the spread of Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus in
California grasslands with colleagues from ecology;
general mathematical models for competition between
species with a shared disease; and a hybrid network
model for the spread of diseases in livestock in the
I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Tulane
University. While continuing previous research, I'm now
working on modeling mosquito-borne diseases
including Rift Valley fever (see this Tulane Wave article), dengue, and chikungunya.
We are adapting large scale spatial agent-based
models for human movement with person to person
transmission (such as EpiSims at LANL) to include
mosquito-borne disease. I am interested in the role of spatial
and temporal variability in weather, landscape, etc. as they effect
risk of vector-borne disease spread.
