I’m a postdoc at the Center for Infectious Disease Dynamics, working with the Ferrari lab on developing surveillance systems for detection of and response to measles outbreaks. In conjunction with this, we are working on methods to characterize the susceptible population of different countries at as fine-grained a geographic scale as possible.


My PhD is in gravitational physics from Montana State University, and my expertise is in time series analysis and Bayesian model selection and parameter estimation.
