I am an infectious disease epidemiologist and statistician.

My current research concerns the design of mathematical tools (known as models) for understanding the spread of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). MDR-TB is TB resistant to (at least) isoniazid and rifampin, the two most potent anti-TB drugs, and is a major global health concern. My work aims to provide evidence for the formulation of control policies against MDR-TB.

I am also involved in efforts, led by the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics (CCDD), to develop capacity in infectious disease modeling in Africa. To this end, I contribute to the design and delivery of the UGHE (University of Global Health Equity, Rwanda)/Harvard training course in mathematical modeling of infectious disease transmission.

Affiliations: CCDD and the Menzies lab (PI: Dr. Nick Menzies).

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
