Overview
I am an epidemiologist with a broad interest in the relationship between health systems and infectious diseases in low- and middle-income countries. My research focuses on understanding the changing epidemiology of pediatric respiratory diseases in the context of new health interventions. I have experience contributing to field studies and disease burden/transmission modeling projects.
