We work on a variety of vector-borne and zoonotic diseases with an effort to better understand and thus control human disease risk. The complex nature of these systems require blending field collections, ecological assessment, laboratory experiments, epidemiological analysis, spatial statistics, remote sensing, geographic information systems, and computer-based modeling in order to develop a more comprehensive view of disease dynamics.

Current research areas include: West Nile virus, dengue, canine heartworm, valley fever, spatial epidemiology, and climate change. Our most exciting recent projects are probably the DARPA / InnoCentive Forecasting Chikungunya Challenge win (Collaborator & Lead on the project Joceline Lega did a nice write-up) and the work on the influence of climate on mosqutio flight ranges which we're conducting at Biosphere-2.
