    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    I am a medical geographer, trained in GIS, remote sensing, disease ecology, and landscape genetics. My research endeavors focus mostly on infectious diseases, particularly viral diseases such as influenza and West Nile virus. I’ve also done work on non-infectious health topics such as blood lead levels, health care accessibility, environmental justice, and skin cancer.
