Data science applications to public health and medicine


Data Science


I am a physician and public health practioner based in Atlanta. My full-time job is at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I lead national surveillance for enteric diseases. I also see patients at Emory as an internist. My interests include infectious diseases, outbreak and anomaly detection, using surveillance data as epidemic intelligence, and mathematical modeling of disease transmission. I am interested in highly practical applications of data science to real problems in public health and medicine.
