About Me

I am a quantitative disease ecologist, interested in the effects of environmental and population drivers of disease dynamics. I am currently a research scientist in Colleen Webb's lab at Colorado State working on the effects of cattle movement patterns on the potential for disease spread. My PhD research focused on developing and exploring a model that looks at the impacts of temperature on mosquito population dynamics and the potential for malaria transmission. This work was done at Penn State in collaboration with my graduate advisor, Ottar Brnstad, and with Andrew Read, Matt ThomasBill Nelson (Queen's University), and Krijn Paaijmans (CRESIB).
