My primary research focus is to enable a data-driven response to outbreaks. I use modeling, data science, and machine learning to create forecasts, cluster reconstructions, risk assessments, intervention analyses, and more to improve the public health response.
Modeling the Impact of Interventions on an Epidemic of Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia in PLoS Outbreaks

I have experience bringing digital intelligence - like social media data, qualitative reports, and PDF data published online - to epidemiological practice. Epidemiology doesn't need big data, we need to make better use of the data we have.
