Career Overview:

I started my graduate training in environmental microbiology and later added a minor in infectious disease epidemiology. I came to Atlanta as a post-doctoral fellow in the Division of Viral Disease at CDC. After four years at CDC, I accepted a faculty position in the Department of Epidemiology at UNC-Chapel Hill. I came to the Department of International Health in 2000 and enjoy the multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural environment here! I have a large range of research projects. Some are microbiology lab studies (I have a lab downstairs), some are epidemiology field studies, and some combine epi field research with microbiological assays.

Research Interests: 

My main focus is applied research in environmental transmission of infectious agents-specifically waterborne and foodborne disease and the relationship between water, sanitation and health. In the area of infectious disease, I cover enteric infections.
