Current Research and Scholarly Interests Our laboratory aims to develop and test innovative approaches to the diagnosis, treatment and control of infectious diseases in resource-limited settings. We draw upon multiple fields including mathematical modeling, microbial genetics, field epidemiology, statistical inference and biodesign to work on challenging problems in infectious diseases, with an emphasis on tuberculosis and tropical diseases.

Instructor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am researching the neurobiology underlying cognitive problems in pediatric epilepsy. I am using transcranial magnetic stimulation paired with EMG and EEG to study cortical excitability and plasticity in children with benign epilepsy with centrotemporal spikes (BECTS or Rolandic Epilepsy). I am investigating whether changes in plasticity affect a child's ability to learn.
MD Student with Scholarly Concentration in Clinical Research / Cardiovascular-Pulmonary Sciences, expected graduation Spring 2019
Bio I am a medical student who is also completing a master's degree in Epidemiology and Clinical Research. My specialty interests are fairly broad as I am considering Internal Medicine and its various subspecialties, but I have been especially interested in Cardiology. I currently work with Dr. Marco Perez to study risk factors for atrial fibrillation using the Women’s Health Initiative, one of the largest population-based cohorts in the U.S.
