Arboviruses are arthropode-borne viruses. I focus on Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika.
Climate change and infectious disease epidemics
We need to protect ourselves to the new infectious disease threats that climate change is bringing about.
The ongoing pandemic.
Disease of livestock
They reduce production, threaten animal welfare, compromise food security.
It’s the next pandemic. Can data-rich mathematical models help prepare for it?
Studying the spread of epidemics as dynamical processes unfolding on complex networks
The HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa, and in key populations.
Can we generate data-driven metrics of human behavior, to make mathematical models more powerful, and accurate?
Mobility is a driver of epidemics. It creates patterns of importation and exportation, it sustains local circulation, it couples outbreaks across space.
