I am a disease ecologist and public health scientist studying the spatial dynamics of infectious diseases passed from animals to humans. I am a PhD candidate in the Environmental Health Sciences department at Emory University and my dissertation research is on the spatial determinants of Yersinia pestis, the bacteria that causes the plague. My research aims to improve disease surveillance techniques by accounting for surveillance bias and imperfect detection of cases.
