We research the ecology, evolution, and epidemiology of vector-borne, wildlife, and zoonotic diseases using field-based
studies and molecular tools. By understanding how pathogens are maintained in nature, we aim to identify novel targets
for interventions to reduce disease risk to humans, wildlife, and domestic animal populations.
