Amy is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology. Her research uses a range of mathematical and statistical approaches to understand the role of human behavior on infectious disease dynamics. She works on understanding dynamics of disease transmission with respect to several infectious diseases, and she investigates how pathogens can emerge in naïve populations and what impact human travel has on control efforts. Her research uses novel data sets (including mobile phone data), genomics, and epidemiological data to understand the impact of mobility on the emergence and elimination of infectious diseases. Before coming to Johns Hopkins, Amy earned her B.A. in Human Ecology from the College of the Atlantic and her Ph.D. in Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University. She also completed postdoctoral training at the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and at the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Princeton University.
