Gund Institute for Ecological Economics
I am currently a postdoctoral associate with Dr. Taylor Ricketts at the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics and co-advised by Dr. Sam Myers at the Harvard School of Public Health. My research explores the link between ecosystem dynamics and human health. I am particularly interested in: (1) understanding how ecosystem change influences human disease and nutrition, and (2) devising strategies that protect both human health and the environment. The majority of my research uses statistical analyses of spatial and temporal field data to address these issues. Other interests include population and landscape ecology, mosquito-borne diseases, and simulation modeling.
Current Research Projects
- Modeling the effects of conservation strategies on human health: Bushmeat hunting in Africa
- Linking ecosystems and health: Crop pollination, nutrition, and burden of disease in developing countries
- Testing the effect of protected areas on human health and livelihoods
