https://www.imperial.ac.uk/people/e.volz https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=cp2B1yUAAAAJ&hl=en I study the interaction of epidemiological dynamics and evolution of pathogens. The aim of this work is to improve surveillance of infectious diseases using molecular data. I also study the role of social and sexual networks in mediating the spread of infectious diseases. I have a substantive focus on HIV/AIDS. Recent work has focused on the development of better methods for estimating HIV incidence, transmission rates, and behavioral heterogeneity of populations at risk of HIV. I have graduate training in sociology and mathematics (Cornell University) and postdoctoral training in HIV research (University of California- San Diego). I recently completed a NIH career development fellowship focused on the development of methods for molecular epidemiological surveillance of HIV (University of Michigan- Ann Arbor).
