She is currently involved in research on transmission of diarrheal pathogens, household water quality, impacts of climate on waterborne disease, and the role of food production systems on the evolution and spread of antibiotic resistance. Northern coastal Ecuador has been a focal point of her research since 2003, but she has also worked in Guatemala, Micronesia, The Phillippines, Mexico, and California, and is also currently working on a study of the water distribution system in Atlanta, GA.
