Short Biography

My work spans spatial statistics, epidemiology, and geographic information systems research. I implement and apply statistical methods to real-world disease problems, particularly in developing countries. In 2012 our small team ran a weekly prediction model for meningitis outbreaks in Africa working with the WHO and partners in the countries. For next year we hope to have a web-based prediction dashboard system where stakeholders can get outbreak prediction data and browse historical events.

An essential part of my research is the production of quality software. Code that I've written has been released as open-source packages for the R statistics system and plugins for the QGIS Desktop GIS program. I always insist that grant applications specify that software products produced are to be released under an open-source license.
