Disease transmission dynamics

Mathematical models of infectious diseases - computer simulation of epidemics - enable researchers to study their transmission dynamics, to predict the potential population-level impact of interventions, and to optimize prevention/control programs. So far, my work as mainly focused on HIV and other STBBIs.

Epidemiology and measurements

Measurements of population health and its determinants is a key step to benchmark, monitor progress, and devise appropriate health policies. I use models to analyze and pool complex surveys for diverse health outcomes/indicators.

Impact and economic evaluations

By comprehensively assessing the effects - intended and unintended - of a health program, impact evaluations can generate new evidence, promote accountability, and prioritize public health actions. Combined with complimentary cost-effectiveness analyses, impact evaluation can help policy-makers chose those interventions that provides the biggest bang for the buck.
