Optimal vaccine allocation for COVID-19: Who should get vaccinated first?
In collaboration with Tiffany Leung, Julie Eaton and Elizabeth R. Brown, we are investigating the optimal allocation strategies for COVID-19 vaccines (Science Advances, 2021).
The New York Times magazine did a really nice piece covering our work here!
Undark magazine has an excellent piece covering our work here!
Could widespread use of antiviral treatment curb the COVID-19 pandemic? A modeling study.
Using an agent-based model, we evaluated the population-level effects of antiviral treatments to reduce COVID-19 deaths and SARS-CoV-2 transmission.
Optimizing cholera vaccine allocation
What is the best use of scarce resources during a cholera outbreak? How is the optimal use of vaccine depend on things like transmissibility, age, setting (urban vs. rural)? Check the paper here:

COVID-19 dynamics and social distancing interventions
What does the term “flattening the curve” exactly mean? In this paper, Tiffany Leung and I quantified the effectiveness of social distancing interventions against COVID-19. We showed that if started early, social distancing interventions delay the epidemic, and if started late, they result in flattening the curve. Emerging Infectious Diseases, 2020

How do B-cells differentiate to create antibodies against virtually every single antigen they encounter? In collaboration with Ollivier Hyrien, we are developing a stochastic model of B-cell affinity maturation.
