Her research interests center on developing new metrics for quantifying health disparities, specifically related to disease burden and antibacterial resistance. She is currently working on-site in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where she designed a project comparing colonization with drug resistant Gram-positive bacteria in children at public (slum and low income patients) and private (high income patients) pediatric clinics.
Beyond research, she spends her time on site conducting courses on epidemiological methods and molecular epidemiology as well as mentoring students and improving manuscript writing through published editorials and lectures.
