Current Emory Research Lab Members

I have the honor of working with the following graduate students and post-doctoral fellows at Emory University and beyond. External students affiliated with our lab have a primary mentor at their institution. Please click their bios below to read more about their interests and work.

Kevin Maloney headshot
Kevin Maloney

Emory University

Kevin is a PhD student in the Department of Epidemiology at Emory University. His research focuses on HIV and STI prevention among men who have sex with men (MSM). Currently, he is working on estimating the population impact of HIV serosorting and PrEP sorting on HIV incidence among MSM. He received an MPH from Boston University and BS in Biological Sciences from Drexel University. He can be found @KevinMalonga tweeting about epidemiology, pandemics, and running.
Emeli Anderson headshot
Emeli Anderson

Emory University

Emeli is a 4th-year epidemiology PhD student at Emory University. Her research focuses on HIV and sexually transmitted infection transmission dynamics in sexual networks. In particular, she is interested in the relationship between a population's underlying network structure and a pathogen's transmission potential and how this information can be used to prevent disease transmission. Before beginning the PhD program, she received her MSPH with a concentration in epidemiology from Emory University, and a BS in Economics from American University.

Laura Mann

Emory University

Laura Mann is a PhD student in epidemiology interested in HIV and STI prevention and infectious disease modeling. Her current research focuses on using mathematical models to estimate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on HIV incidence in the US. Prior to joining Emory and the EpiModel lab, Laura worked at the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention as an epidemiologist and STEM Presidential Management Fellow. Laura has a BS in biological sciences with a concentration in physiology & neurobiology from the University of Maryland and an MPH in epidemiology from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health.

Greg Knowlton

University of Minnesota

Greg Knowlton is a PhD student in the Health Services Research, Policy & Administration program at the University of Minnesota – Twin Cities and his work focuses on the development of statistical methods and R software for cost-effectiveness analysis. Greg received his BA in chemistry from Amherst College in 2015 before changing fields and going to the University of Minnesota for his MS in biostatistics. Greg is currently developing and maintaining the R package "dampack" , and has contributed to several applied projects related to the cost-effectiveness of interventions supporting the use of PrEP in Atlanta and the Minnesota Department of Health’s COVID-19 response.
Christina Chandra headshot
Christina Chandra

Emory University

Christina is a PhD student in Epidemiology at Emory University. As a research assistant in the EpiModel lab, she has conducted analyses on geographic disparities in STI screening among men who have sex with men using PrEP and comparisons of measurement methods for momentary network degree. Her research interests include HIV prevention research, the use of mathematical modeling in implementation science, and the intersection of HIV and aging and mental health.

Jason Gantenberg headshot
Jason Gantenberg

Brown University

Jason is a PhD candidate in epidemiology at the Brown University School of Public Health. His subject matter interests include HIV, sexually transmitted diseases (primarily gonorrhea and other bacterial STDs), and respiratory infections. His methods interests center around agent-based modeling, machine learning, causal inference, and complex systems more generally.
Adrien Le Guillou headshot
Adrien Le Guillou

Emory University

Adrien Le Guillou, MD a French epidemiologist and former post doctoral researcher in the Department of Epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University. He received his MD in 2019 from the Université de Reims Champagne-Ardenne where his work focused on the impact the Treatment as Prevention (TasP) for HIV had on the French population. He is currently working with the EpiModel Research Lab as a contributor to the EpiModel software package and as investigator on its research applications. His research interest is the application of causal reasonning and mathematical modeling to explore the epidemiology of HIV and viral hepatis.

Katy Krupinsky

Emory University

Katy is a first year MPH student in Epidemiology at Emory University and a research assistant in the EpiModel lab. Her research interests include applications of mathematical models to respiratory infections and infectious diseases more generally.
