Georgetown University

I am a Provost's Distinguished Associate Professor at Georgetown University's Department of Biology. Before joining Georgetown University in 2012, I completed a RAPIDD postdoctoral fellowship at the CIDD at Penn State University and the Fogarty International Center at NIH, under the mentorship of Professor Bryan Grenfell and Dr. Ellis McKenzie. I completed my Ph.D in 2008 in network modeling and infectious disease ecology at the University of Texas at Austin and was advised by Professor Lauren Ancel Meyers. I was a NASA-Jenkins Fellow during this time.
I am an interdisciplinary mathematical biologist, and my research is focused on the development of data-driven mathematical models for the prevention and containment of human and animal infectious diseases using tools from network science, statistical physics, computer science and statistics.
