Our goal is to understand how social behavior and spatial dynamics shape infectious disease transmission and how knowledge of such processes can improve disease surveillance and control in human and wildlife disease systems.
We combine mathematical models with empirical data to generate insights into behavioral and transmission mechanisms. We use both bottom-up approaches (mechanistic models) and top-down approaches (statistical models) alongside observational, experimental, and opportunistic data.
