Biography

I graduated from YSPH with my MPH in Spring 2017, and am continuing my thesis work on Legionnaires' disease through a grant from the Climate Change and Health Initiative and support from the CT Dept of Public Health. My research is split between microbial analysis of Legionella in the environment and statistical modeling of sporadic legionellosis. I am particularly interested in quantifying the fluctuations of Legionella in natural reservoirs after rainfall events and modeling the influence of climate/weather on disease incidence both temporally and spatially. I have previously explored both the role of pneumococcal vaccine on antibiotic resistance and spatial trends of IPD in CT during my masters internship in Weinberger lab.
