The goal of my research program is to work with knowledge users to inform national and international decisions about optimal infectious disease control and prevention strategies in the context of limited resources, and to provide better modeling tools for policy decisions. My team and I develop state-of-the-art transmission-dynamic models, analyze large population-level datasets, and use epidemiology and health economics to estimate the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of infectious disease control and prevention strategies at the population-level and within vulnerable or at-risk groups.
