My research focuses on the ecology of infectious disease. I am interested in how climate, species interactions, and global change drive infectious disease dynamics in humans and natural ecosystems. This research combines mathematical modeling and empirical work.
I received my B.S. in 2007 at the University of Georgia in Mathematical Biology and my PhD in 2012 at the University of California Santa Barbara in Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology. I then completed a 2-year NSF postdoctoral research fellowship in the Intersection of Biology and Mathematical and Physical Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. I am currently an Associate Professor in the Biology Department at Stanford University, where I have been since January 2015. I am a member of Bio-X, a faculty affiliate of the Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence and the Woods Institute for the Environment, a faculty fellow in the Center for Innovation in Global Health and the King Center on Global Development, a Leading Interdisciplinary Collaborations Fellow, and an Ecological Society for America Early Career Fellow.
