We analyze transmission dynamics by simulating disease spread through virtual populations connected in networks. By simulating real-world scenarios, we study the effects of potential public health interventions and identify optimal policy levers to improve population-level health outcomes.


We use our model to study HIV in the contexts of:

Drug-Related Harms

We study the increasing rates of HIV transmission among people who inject drugs.

Health Equity

We are passionate about informing policies that eliminate health disparities.

Biomedical Interventions

We investigate how multiple biomedical HIV interventions interact with one another.

Incarceration Experiences

We research the health effects of incarceration on individuals and their communities.
