Research Interests

Research Interests

I am currently working on a doctoral project Incorporating Public Responses to Health Communication into Epidemiological Models, which reflects my interest in multi-disciplinary and intra-disciplinary methodology and collaboration.  I am specifically interested in the social, cognitive, and emotional precursors of behavior change in individuals and populations in response to infectious diseases and communication about risk; and the effective integration of this sophisticated behavioral information into computational epidemiological models.

I am also interested in evidence-based public health intervention, program evaluation, mixed-model approaches in public health, and the development of evidence-based health policy which focuses on prevention. 

I take a social justice and human rights approach to my research, and have other interests in emergency management, preparedness, psychopathology, vulnerable and research-neglected populations, public health ethics, science and health communication, science and public health education, and history of public health.    I am supervised by Prof. Dan Haydon, Dr. Kate Reid, and Dr. Rebecca Mancy.
