He investigates the interaction between human-made and natural humanitarian emergencies and infectious diseases, with an emphasis on vaccine-preventable infections. He uses epidemiology and simulation modeling to better understand how (1) complex humanitarian emergencies contribute to the risk for communicable diseases, especially among people who are displaced, and (2) how infectious diseases can complicate the clinical and public health response to humanitarian emergencies.
