Glass focuses on understanding infections disease systems: the agents, hosts and environmental sources. He especially is interested in detailing how changes in environmental conditions over space and time alter patterns of disease and discovering how those patterns can provide clues to what triggers disease emergence. Combining data from numerous sources, including remotely sensed imagery, with epidemiologic studies in statistical analyses, he aims to find ways to anticipate and intervene to prevent large-scale disease outbreaks.
