Dr. Hoen's research focus is on the development of the microbiome in infants and children, and the associations between environmental and dietary exposures, the microbiome, and risk for infectious and other diseases. She has a broad interest in the predictors of disease risk and microbial colonization dynamics in human populations and the environment as reflected in microbial genetic sequence variation and health informatics streams over space and time. Interdisciplinary approaches used in her research include spatial and time-series statistics, population genetics and novel disease surveillance methodologies along with tools from the fields of microbial ecology, molecular epidemiology and landscape epidemiology.

Dr. Hoen completed her PhD in epidemiology and public health at Yale University and received post-doctoral training at Children's Hospital Boston, Harvard Medical School and McGill University. She has broad training in biostatistics, epidemiology and public health with research experience in the evaluation of interventions, understanding infectious disease emergence and spread, and evaluating associations between the microbiome and human health. Her research uses advanced spatial and time series analysis as well as informatics and complex systems approaches. Past studies include modeling the timing and spread of influenza to estimate the effects of interventions targeting children, modeling the evolutionary ecology of the Lyme disease agent, Borrelia burgdorferi and characterizing the initial development of the human micrbiome in early life and its associations with common exposures and infectious outcomes.
