Personal Statement:

My primary interest is in the disease ecology of viral zoonoses transmitted from small mammals. I utilize methods from epidemiology and population biology to understand pathogen/host (both human and animal) interactions. In addition to observational and quasi-experimental field studies, I am interested implementing human and animal surveillance for zoonoses and epidemic-prone diseases. The ultimate goal of my research is to develop community-level interventions to halt primary animal-to-human transmission.
