I am currently a postdoctoral research associate with the Schiffer group at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in the Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division. I am broadly interested in the use of mathematical models for studying the spread, treatment and cure of infectious diseases.
I am currently working on (1) the development of individual-based models to describe the spread and immunological containment of herpes simplex virus in genital, oral and ocular lesions; and (2) techniques to assess the effectiveness of gene therapy for the cure of chronic viral infections such as HSV, HIV and HBV.
Other areas of interest include:
- understanding the effects of spatial structure on evolutionary outcomes and trajectories in natural and experimental populations.
- use of signal processing and classification tools for rapid triage in pre-hospital and emergency care
