Research interests

Research interests

I am interested in the epidemiology and surveillance of zoonotic pathogens. I have worked previously in an urban slum setting, examining the zoonotic risks associated with urbanization and with rodent borne zoonoses particularly. Since moving to Glasgow I have been investigating the social and ecological impacts of several bacterial zoonotic diseases across different ecological settings in northern Tanzania. My current research focus is on brucellosis but I also work actively on other livestock associated pathogens including leptospirosis and Q fever amongst others.

Current project

I am currently working on the molecular epidemiology of brucellosis in northern Tanzania.
