Current Research:
  • Developing a multidisciplinary systems approach to better understand tropical infectious disease population dynamics and to serve as a tool for the rational design and management of large-scale community based intervention programs, ranging from vector control to chemotherapy to vaccinations; use of big data platforms to facilitate decision making under conditions of biocomplexity, uncertainty, and local socio-ecologies.
  • Developing convergent web- and mobile-phone-based management information systems as tools for capturing spatially distributed intervention and health outcomes data in order to assess program effectiveness, support adaptive policy analysis, and empower local health decision making.
  • Exploring and applying social enterprise models based on frugal innovations in science, informatics, management, and sustainable business templates, as powerful new complementary solutions for overcoming entrenched health problems in resource-poor settings.
