I'm a graduate student in the Ecology IGDP at Penn State.

My research focuses on how demographic patterns determine the build-up of epidemic risk, particularly for measles.

Previously I came from an applied math background and worked on the dynamics of insurgent warfare with Neil Johnson at the University of Miami.
