  • Research Associate (Institute of Biodiversity Animal Health & Comparative Medicine)

Research interests

My research focuses on the transmission and evolution of multi-host pathogens. I currently work on schistosomiasis, a disease that infects over 200 million people annually. I am interested in incorporating genetic and theoretical methods to find sustainable solutions that simultaneously improve human, animal, and ecosystem health.
