Our group’s research centers on the statistical analysis of emerging infectious diseases, with a particular focus on evaluating the efficacy and effectiveness of investigational vaccines. We study innovative strategies for conducting phase 3 vaccine trials adapted to the outbreak setting. We also examine the statistical properties of observational study designs like the test negative designs. We apply these methods to diverse diseases, like Ebola, Zika, dengue, chikungunya, influenza, and COVID-19. Our group is highly collaborative and motivated by high-impact problems in global health.
