Pratha is an Associate Research Scientist at the Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis. She completed her PhD in epidemiology and infectious disease modeling at Georgetown University, Washington DC. Her research is focused on applications of quantitative methods in the study of infectious disease outbreaks. She uses mathematical, statistical and network models to understand how policy, human behavior and the environment influences the disease transmission; and how disease outbreaks, in turn, shape local and global policy.
