Research interests

My research integrates landscape ecology, population genetics and mathematical modelling to enhance our understanding of the context (animal species traits, ecosystem properties) and conditions (rate of habitat loss, frequency of pharmaceutical interventions, human behaviors) in which anthropogenic change increases zoonotic disease risk in human populations.
