Infectious disease epidemiologist specializing in the intersection between mathematical models of disease transmission and observational methods. Crafter of artisanal simulation models for the discerning scientist. Oddly fond of enteric pathogens.

A fair hand at SAS, Python and R

comment Where in Thailand should I be cautious about malaria?
It's not a rumor, it's known science. There are four strains of Dengue - being infected with a second (or third or fourth) strain after a first infection puts you at considerably higher risk for Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever or Dengue Shock Syndrome - both of which are things you really don't want to get.

comment Can I buy malaria medication in India?
@PeterHahndorf Or at dinner or going for a stroll or socializing or any number of things people do after the sun goes down. While the largest risk of being bitten may be while you're sleeping, I agree that it's not a sufficient preventative measure.

comment How far into Washington, DC should I drive before taking the Metro?
+1 for this answer. Both suggested stations are near the Beltway, and before the DC area traffic explodes into chaos.
