For Patients:
My research interests are focused on how to measure the effectiveness of vaccines and other health interventions against emerging infectious diseases. This includes how to detect disease in a population using innovative surveillance tools (i.e. smartphones, crowd-sourcing), studying the true burden of disease (both the health and socioeconomic impacts on the individual and the family), and how to reduce disease burden through cost-effective interventions such as vaccines. Much of this work takes places at our University of Colorado research site in Guatemala.
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.
