Scholarly Interests

  • Epidemiologic characteristics of infectious diseases
  • Socio-economic drivers of infectious disease transmission
  • Health disparities and vulnerable populations
  • Infectious disease transmission and social networks
  • Computational modeling


  • infectious disease epidemiology, computational modeling, socio-economic drivers of transmission

Dr. Litvinova’s research leverages data analysis, statistical and mathematical modeling to investigate the determinants of infectious disease epidemiology and to evaluate potential prevention, mitigation, and control policies. One of her interests lies in understanding of the connections between social, economic, and demographic contexts and the spread of infectious diseases.

Dr. Litvinova continues to be interested in the research in the following areas:

  • Infectious disease transmission, social and contact networks.
  • Epidemiologic characteristics of infectious diseases and NPIs to control the epidemic spread.
  • Health disparities, socio-economic drivers of transmission and vulnerable populations.
  • Economics and epidemics.
