I have a two-track research program. My primary research program is in theoretical computer science, more specifically in the foundations of distributed graph algorithms. Here I am interested in trade-offs between different resources used by distributed algorithms (e.g., rounds, messages, bandwidth, network topology, randomness, initial knowledge, etc.). My research in distributed graph algorithms has intersections with other areas in theoretical computer science such as approximation algorithms, combinatorial optimization, communication complexity, graph theory, information theory, and randomized algorithms.

In addition, I am part of the interdisciplinary Computational Epidemiology Group at Iowa. As part of my work with this group, I work on problems related to disease-diffusion, disease-inference and disease-mitigation on contact networks. I design algorithmic solutions to these problems that have low-cost implementations in healthcare settings. A particular focus of our group is healthcare associated infections and we are part of the CDC funded MInD Healthcare group.
