Can you describe your dissertation research briefly and for a lay audience

My PhD research involved modeling healthcare workers, patients, and infectious diseases and building a realistic simulation of a hospital to answer questions about efficient use of resources and the spread of hospital-acquired infections.

What are you doing now in a professional capacity?

I work as a software development engineer at Amazon.com. My team designs, builds and maintains the AmazonLocal website, and the Scalable, redundant back-end service used by the website and out mobile applications.
