Part of my current research focuses on malaria transmission among highly mobile populations in the Amazon Rainforest of Ecuador and Peru. This work aims to understand the relationship between internal and external migration, social networks, and the spread of malaria to better identify subpopulation at high risk. I am also involved in a project with Dr. Charlie Nunn at Duke University to develop a database that enumerates parasites infecting various primate species. This project aims to fill gaps in knowledge created by sampling bias of specific species and locations. Creation of this database is part of the Duke/UNC/NC State collaboration for the NSF’s Predictive Intelligence for Pandemic Prevention (PIPP) initiative.
