Curriculum Vitae

Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis

Dogs and their owners wait in line for canine rabies vaccination during a campaign in northwest Tanzania

We showed that canine rabies vaccination was both an epidemiologically effective and economically cost-effective approach to protect people from rabies transmission (Fitzpatrick et al 2014 Annals of Internal Medicine).
