Research Interests:
My research interests focus on vaccine-preventable diseases, including vaccine-preventable disease epidemiology, field-level studies of specific infection prevention and control interventions, studies of the management or natural history of infectious syndromes (e.g. the rule-out sepsis workup among infants, using national datasets), clinical evaluation of vaccines (especially effectiveness, and cost effectiveness), and development of rapid diagnostic tools for severe infection.
