I am currently a Hutchinson postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Vanessa Ezenwa's lab at Yale University, studying effects of parasites/pathogens on hosts and the environment. I received my Ph.D. from Dr. Wendy Turner's lab at University of Wisconsin-Madison, studying anthrax dynamics in herbivorous wildlife in Etosha National Park, Namibia and Kruger National Park, South Africa.
My research interests include disease and movement ecology. I exam disease spatiotemporal dynamics, with data on disease infections and animal host movements. I apply quantitative skills to assess characteristics of empirical disease dynamics and animal movements. These patterns provide underlying information of effects of the environment and/or disease transmission. I also apply simulation models to evaluate whether host movements potentially drive disease dynamics.
