Dr. Steven Stoddard is specialized in the ecology and epidemiology of infectious diseases. His interests lie in the role host movements (e.g., travelers) play in both epidemic and endemic patterns of pathogen transmission, and in the design of interventions to mitigate disease burden. Much of his work has focused on the mosquito-borne disease, dengue, in Latin America where he directed field epidemiological studies. Currently his focus is on understanding the risk of infection of Vibrio cholerae, the cause of cholera, and the application of vaccines for disease prevention and control. Dr. Stoddard directed the inaugural Public Health in Colombia course in the Spring of 2017 that provided first-hand exposure to public health practice in Colombia to SDSU students. He splits his time between California, Colombia, and parts between.
