Steven studies the transmission of human pathogens. He conducts field studies, analyses data and uses mathematical models to look at scientific questions that are relevant to public health: how does our pattern of social contacts affect the transmission of respiratory infections? How much more severe is one strain of influenza than another? How far does influenza penetrate into rural areas after it sweeps through cities?
