Research Interest for Referring Providers
My research interests focus on using innovative approaches to reduce the burden of emerging infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. Specifically, I am interested in using new technologies (smartphones, participatory surveillance) to estimate disease burden, capturing both the clinical (illness severity) and socioeconomic (work absenteeism, reduced productivity) consequences of infectious diseases for individuals and their families, and studying how interventions, such as vaccines, can reduce those burdens of disease in a cost-effective manner. Much of this work takes places at the University of Colorado Research site in Guatemala, where we have several studies focusing on arboviruses, enteric disease, influenza, mosquito vectors, and agricultural worker's health.
