I am a Ph.D. student in Engineering and Public Policy at Carnegie Mellon University. My research uses tools from epidemology, geography, and statistics to understand human mobility patterns for public health and infectious disease research. Using large sources of behavioral data, mainly mobile phone data, I work to quantify human travel patterns and quantify the impact on infectious disease spread. The majority of my research is focused in Kenya on the transmission of malaria.
At CMU, I am under the advisement of Caroline Buckee and Nathan Eagle both at the Harvard School of Public Health. I am involved with The Human Mobility Mapping Project and funded by a National Science Foundation fellowship.
