Research Interests:
Michael uses systems science methods to address a range of public health topics. His research uses mathematical and computational tools to understand the mechanisms of disease transmission with a focus on the interaction between human behavior and disease processes.

Research Projects:
Current projects include modeling the impact of water and sanitation interventions on respiratory disease outbreaks and understanding the transmission of respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases in child care settings. Michael is also actively interested in the development and application of computational methods for public health research and practice.
