I am currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, College of Public Health, at the University of Georgia (UGA). My research focuses on data analysis and modeling of infectious diseases, mainly influenza, norovirus, tuberculosis and recently COVID-19. This website contains some information about myself and my activities (teaching, presentations, blog posts, etc.). More details regarding the research done in my group, as well as links to publications, can be found on my research group site. Some overlap between the two sites might occur.
