Dr. Polgreen is the director of the Infectious Disease Society of America’s Emerging Infections Network, a CDC-sponsored sentinel surveillance group. In addition to traditional hospital epidemiology, his research interests include developing new ways to aggregate information about infectious diseases (e.g., prediction markets) and applying quantitative methods to help prevent the spread of infections. He is currently working with an interdisciplinary group of researchers to apply quantitative approaches (e.g., social networking, time series methods) to understand and solve problems in the field of infectious diseases.
