Qualified on the content I am responsible for because: I am an MD/PhD candidate currently conducting my dissertation research in epidemiology on norovirus and foodborne illness. Among my scientific interests has been the development of modeling strategies to assess risk and estimate burden of disease related to food production and foodborne illness. I have created multiple models of norovirus transmission in the agricultural environment.
