Texas Monthly recently recognized Dr. Fisher as one of “2021 Best Things in Texas” for her efforts “to give Texans—and the rest of the world—accurate guidance on the pandemic.” An infectious disease epidemiologist by training, her research interests include tropical diseases, global health and outbreak investigation.
Dr. Fischer is an infectious disease epidemiologist with training and experience in epidemiologic response (including outbreak response and rapid assessments), tropical diseases, and field methods. She has experience conducting surveillance and investigations for endemic and infectious diseases and is particularly interested in global health, emerging diseases, and international disease spread.
Officials from the Brazos County Health District asked Dr. Fischer, who is an expert in epidemiology, and other faculty members to augment their epidemiological response activities.
