Paul Lantos is interested in the spatial epidemiology of infectious diseases. His research utilizes geographic information systems (GIS) and geostatistical software to understand the spatial and spatiotemporal distribution of diseases and their relationship with environmental and demographic factors. He currently has active studies of influenza, cytomegalovirus, Lyme disease, dengue, tick-borne rickettsial diseases and socioeconomic health disparities. He is also interested in GIS education and has conducted workshops on public health GIS in Mongolia and China.
