I'm a fellow with the CDC Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (EPHTP) and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Michigan State University. I work to better understand environmental determinants of public health and to make data (and epidemiological insights) more readily accessible to the public. I accomplish this by leveraging high performance computing resources, improving data analysis pipelines, and employing advanced statistical and machine learning techniques. My doctoral and post-doctoral research focused on identifying how climate, hydrology, and the spatial distribution and characteristics of aquatic habitats influence mosquito-borne disease transmission, particularly West Nile virus and Eastern equine encephalitis virus, in the United States.
In my spare time I like playing any sport that involves a ball, picking through stuff at estate sales with my fiancé (…pre-COVID19), and playing around with data in R.
