Benjamin  Lopman


Faculty, Epidemiology

Jointly Appointed, Environmental Health

I am an infectious disease epidemiologist, with a research focus on vaccines and enteric viruses.  My team conducts both global and domestic research mainly targeted at diarrheal diseases caused by rotavirus and norovirus.  We employ a range of approaches including field studies, statistical analysis and dynamic mathematical modeling to address policy-relevant public health research questions.

Since Spring 2020, we have worked extensively on the epidemiology of the COVID-19 pandemic.
