Research interests

My research interests are in the applied epidemiology of diseases of all animal species and of humans. Fundamental to this is knowledge and understanding of the demographics of all species and of particular interest are the circumstances that conspire to bring people into contact with animals and/or their products in ways that alter their risk of zoonotic disease. Further, I am interested in exploring the most effective means of communicating and teaching epidemiological material to audiences from all walks of life.
