Research Summary

Interested in conservation biology, global change ecology, public health and environmental policy. Much of my research focuses on emerging infectious disease, their implications for human health and native wildlife. Particularly interested in zoonoses - infectious agents shared between animals and humans, their global distribution, and how practices such as wildlife trade facilitate their emergence around the world.
