- Clinical interest for patients
My clinical interests include the management of infections in children. My specific areas of interest include tropical diseases and diseases related to global health/travel.
- Research interest for patients
My research interests are focused on how to measure the effectiveness of vaccines and other health interventions against emerging infectious diseases. This includes how to detect disease in a population using innovative surveillance tools (i.e. smartphones, crowd-sourcing), studying the true burden of disease (both the health and socioeconomic impacts on the individual and the family), and how to reduce disease burden through cost-effective interventions such as vaccines. Much of this work takes places at our University of Colorado research site in Guatemala.
