Research information:

I specialize in methods for risk assessment and risk management, with a particular focus upon human health risks. I am particularly interested in the science policy interface that mediates between the synthesis of facts and the formulation of policy defining conclusions. Methods of particular interest include uncertainty analysis, applied decision analysis, demography, and health economics. I have applied these types of tools in the context of interpreting animal bioassay evidence in the support of regulatory determinations of chemical safety, and am currently applying demography approaches to the study of summary measures of population health (such as DALYs, QALYs, PEYLLs and alike).

I develop mathematical models of infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS, human papilloma virus, malaria and a variety of neglected tropical diseases. These models are in the areas of population epidemiology and within-host immunology. I look at intervention methods such as antiretroviral drugs, vaccines, quarantine and microbicides. I also study R0, the basic reproductive ratio for diseases. (I am also an expert in zombies and have the newspaper, radio and TV experience to prove it...)
