The overarching theme in my research is health disparities. I use computational modeling to assess the impact of interventions on reducing socioeconomic disparities in influenza. My work takes me to India, where I'm studying social mixing in rural populations. In the US, I am using statistical and computational techniques to examine the drivers of influenza hospitalization. During the 2009 H1N1 pandemic, I studied racial disparities in vaccine uptake and the voluntary decision to stay home from work if ill.
