Personal profile

Research interests

I'm a veterinary epidemiologist with training in population medicine, infectious diseases, spatial epidemiology, and data science. My interest is to build surveillance and early warning systems targeting health problems at the human-animal-environmental interface. The One Health problems of my interest include zoonotic diseases, food safety related to food of animal origin, and impacts of intensive livestock production on public and environmental health. I encourage the use of existing primary care data for passive surveillance. I appreciate a culture of interdisciplinary research and co-creation of knowledge through team projects that integrate applied science with end-user education.

Research and teaching interests:
Infectious disease epidemiology, spatial epidemiology, Ecological niche modeling, Veterinary public health, zoonotic diseases, disease surveillance
