Comparative Spillover Dynamics of Avian Influenza in Endemic Countries
The goal of this project is to develop models of spillover and transmission dynamics of avian influenza in a variety of localities where it is endemic in wild waterfowl.
Current Research Interests:
I am a biological anthropologist with primary research interests in evolutionary demography and life history theory. In addition these fundamental interests in the evolution of human life histories, I work at the intersection of disease ecology, the analysis of dynamical systems, and social network analysis. My work combines the formalisms of population biology, statistics, and social network analysis to address fundamental problems in biodemography, epidemiology, and human decision-making in variable environments.
