  I am interested in the mechanisms that underlie protective immunity and disease: the phenotypes immune cells adopt to mitigate disease, and how to detect and quantify protective immune profiles in laboratory models, domesticated animals, and in natural populations

  I am a veterinary epidemiologist with an interest in infectious and zoonotic diseases of livestock and fish. I am particularly interested in the use of DNA-based methods to enhance our knowledge of microbial subpopulations and their associations with sources of infection, niche adaptation, transmission mechanisms and disease manifestation.
