Scarpino is a mathematical biologist studying outbreaks as an emergent process and working to improve public health surveillance. His research investigates questions at the intersection of biology, behavior, and disease and his work on surveillance has led to substantive changes in public health practices. Scarpino's highly collaborative research has focused on a broad range of questions outside of disease: from animal movement and group dynamics to the role of genome copy number in evolution.
